Royal loo to be reworked at lieutenant governor's house
HALIFAX (CP) — A regal throne of sorts is undergoing a makeover to avoid possible privacy problems.
A spokesman for Nova Scotia’s lieutenant-governor says a washroom at the newly renovated Government House in Halifax has to be redone to suit the needs of the Queen and other VIPs.
Christopher McCreery says a bathroom reserved for royalty and other prominent visitors is shared by two adjoining bedrooms.
He says it’s not acceptable for the Queen to share a washroom so the room will be divided into two private bathrooms.
The official residence of Lt.Gov. Mayann Francis reopened in December after undergoing a renovation that cost taxpayers $6 million and took several years.
The changes will cost $15,000, but McCreery says it’s not yet clear whether the Queen will stay at the residence when she visits the province this June.
