lOUR ROYAL VISITORS. A VISIT TO EVESHAM. King Carlos and the Queen of Portugal arrived at Evesham soon after five o'clock on {Saturday evening, on a visit to the Queen's brother, the Duke of Orleans, at Wood Norton. They had journeyed in the Royal train. Preparations had been made to give their Majesties a civic reception, and a guard of honour, consisting of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Worcestershire Regiment, and the battalion band were drawn up at the station. The Royal travellers were met at the station by the Duke and Duchess of Orleans, who had previously arrived by motor-car. Cordial greetings having been exchanged, the Ma-vor presented an address, for which the King expressed his thanks. The Mayoress presented file Queen with a handsome bouquet, which her Majesty graciously accepted, shaking hands with. the donor. i After inspecting the guard of honour and leaking hands with the Mayor and prominent townsmen, King Carlos, with the rest of the Royal party, proceeded by motor to Wood! Norton, the Duke of Orleans driving. A dense fog overhung the town, preventing the decorations from being properly seen. The King was attired in a morning dress, with silk hat and large overcoat. The Queen wore a sealskin coat and a black hat. Before setting out for Evesham, King Carlos, getting up early, went shopping in the West- end. Accompanied only by an equerry, his Majesty left Buckingham Palace immediately after breakfast, and, walking across the park, proceeded to Bond-street, where he entered several shops and made purchases. He was not in all cases recognised by the shopkeepers, for where his purchases were not bulky he carried them: himself instead of having them sent to the Palace. On Sunday the King and Queen of Portugal attended Mass at the church close to the mansion at Wood Norton. PHEASANT SHOOTING. The King of Portugal had a good day's sport over the Hipton coverts on Monday, with his host the Duke of Orleans, and other members of the house party. When, after luncheon, sport was resumed, the Queen and Duch-esse d'Orleans, the Duchesse de Guise, and the Marquis de Several, accompanied the guns, and remained until the bag had been made up. At some previous shoots in which King Carlos has taken part since his arrival in England the pheasants have been a trifle more tame than so expert a sportsman would have desired. This was not so on Monday, and work proved correspondingly exhilarating, greatly to the satisfaction of the King, who expressed himself delighted with the excellent sport provided for him. Their Majesties dined in the evening with the house party. The dining-room at Wood Norton is a fine apartment, with hand- some oak panellings, and when the valuable collection of plate is on view, as it was on Monday night, the effect under the light of massive candelabra is extremely rich. A RECORD BAG. King Carlos on Tuesday made a record bag in the preserves near Wood Norton House. The weather was delightfully fine, and the thaw had completely changed the face of the country. The party of eight guns was made up exactly as on the previous day, and they were joined by Queen Amelie and the other ladies of the house party at luncheon, which was served in a room recently erected as an annexe to the head game- keeper's lodge. Several photographs were afterwards taken. At the end of the day it was found that the eight guns had accounted for 2,810 head of game, including forty-one wild duck and a number of rabbits. The Portuguese King and Queen ended their visit to Wood Nor- ton on Wednesday morning. The Royal saloon left Evesham at half-past eleven for London.
