Chapel has, let’s be honest, a rather stilted view of England from getting most of her knowledge of the country from a fare of Doctor Who and BBC period dramas. So her idea of the place is a little bit strange! In panel 1, I drew her in a roughly translated version of one part of the Buckingham Palace gardens. In Panel 2, I wanted to show that there were various other people at the tea party, so to give that sense of a crowd without really “showing” them I took advantage of the height difference and showed Chapel’s full body, but not theirs.
And, of course, Chapel is wearing a fascinator by quintessential English hatmaker Phillip Treacy – the absolute must-have for hobnobbing with the upper crust over afternoon tea.
