Laura talked about her conversation with the Queen. “She said, ‘Well, make sure you win,’ and I actually did go on and win,” Davies recalled. I said to someone the other day, I wonder if she looked at the results. I know she didn’t. In my mind, it would be nice to think she got the newspaper out on Monday and looked at the scores.”
