Award-winning Australian journalist and presenter Chris Reason had to cut a brief holiday in northern Queensland short to fly to London to cover the death of the Queen; he had only just returned from another stint in Ukraine. But having spent many years based in London for Channel 7, he has covered numerous royal stories, not to mention the divorce of Prince Charles and Lady Di and all the other scandals during 1992 - including the great fire at Windsor Castle. His first year in London was, as the late Queen called it, her ‘Annus Horribilis’.
