NotesNews: The most disaster strewn royal visit in recent years reached a fitting conclusion with a brawl between British diplomats and Indian security police as the Queen was preparing to board her flight in Madras to return to London. Four policeman attempted to prevent Geoffrey Crawford, the Queen's press secretary, from boarding the aircraft. The jinxed trip is a source of considerable embarrassment for Robin Cook, who has been accused, in India and here, of mishandling British policy in Kashmir.
