You may not fly your flag if you are invited to play at the club. You may not take a photo of your team with a flag at the ground. Only the Sovereign’s standard may be raised. Only one ball may be used in a game. The wicket is wretched and the interior and exterior of the pavilion ghastly. The place has the air of servants knowing their place. The Although the club's members are mostly Royal Household staff supplemented by local cricketers if they are short-handed, members of the British royal family have also played for it. In 1905, two future kings, Edward VIII (then Prince Edward) and George VI (then Prince Albert) played on opposite sides in a match between the club and Eton College. More recently, Prince Philip has played for the club and has served as its President since 1953. Queen Elizabeth II is the club's Patron.
