Hubble enlists the help of his aspirant sniffer dog Winston as he continues in his new role of Royal Bodyguard.

It's The Queen's birthday, but Hubble soon stumbles into calamity and is forced to take a few days' break at a health spa - where he comes across a familiar face and his planned relaxation is suddenly shelved.

He returns to duty in time to oversee Her Majesty's visit to an Oxford Museum, which is far from straightforward.
