When did HH refuse? Under the Tories or Labour?
Personally, I did once turn down an invite to a "royal" Garden Party in Edinburgh - because I don't believe in monarchies. So did my wife. The honours system is a bit diferent tho, and it's evolving all the time: evolution not revolution, no more chopping off of heads!
As it happens, I gave a Norma CD to my English son-in-law for Christmas. He had never heard of her and was quite amazed, as I was, that her name turned up in the Honours List!
