ABC Wednesday - Royal

I've been away for a few Wednesdays so lost track of which letter we had all arrived at this week.  Happily while abroad  I'd taken a photo of Le Royal Cafe entrance in the concourse of Antwerp Station where there are lots of opportunities to eat and drink or while away the time taking photographs until the right train arrives on one of the four platform levels.  Perhaps write a postcard or two
and then when it arrives in England it will be delivered by the Royal Mail.  The area of London where this post van has stopped at the traffic lights is known for its literary connections to the Bloomsbury Group but they would have been writing letters in the golden age of post when there were at least three deliveries a day.
Even these three look stunned at that. I am sure they are supposed to be royal guards, maybe they will come to life in time for the Queen's jubilee.

A fun idea for the letter R. Like Zongrik, the Nutcracker Suite came to my mind.
