Daisy Goodwin, novelist, TV producer, the creator of the ITV drama Victoria, and the compiler of 101 Poems to Save Your Life, donates Prince Albert, probably the most intelligence royal we have ever had in Britain, and the man who got Cambridge University to start teaching science.

Robin Butler, now the crossbencher Lord Butler of Brockwell, former head of the civil service between Thatcher and Blair, a man who could confirm that Yes Minister really is true, and whose daughter invented Come Dine With Me, offers up a MiG Fighter Aircraft, that was found buried in Iraq (one had its sticking above the sand). It was one of the few things that were found in Iraq after the war, while there were no WMDs.
