A light hearted talk with Grant Harrold The Royal Butler giving an insight into his life. We begin with a Gas fitters son who has dreams beyond the Scottish borders.


The dreams and ambitions to become a butler after watching Remains of the Day do come true but working for the Royals was an extra bonus, however this would be a struggle. With many letters and several interviews he never gave up on his ambitions despite many setbacks and dead ends.


Thanks to an inner determination he kept going and little did he realise that this determination would one day see him working as a Butler to The Prince of Wales and his family.
