I bumped into a group that I know, and asked what was going on, and was told, with beaming smiles, that
"Today is MUFTI DAY"
Mufti wishes to thank her devoted public for this sign of recognition of her central importance in all things, and will be giving audiences in the Curate's study by appointment throughout the day.
Edit; explanatory note for More Cows and others....Mufti = British Raj slang for " Civilian dress, especially when worn by one who normally wears a uniform. "...It was chosen by HG as the name of her puppy-with-a-posh-pedigree and kennel-name to match, so that on state (uniform) occasions the dog concerned might be known as Wyafon Kawarra but the rest of the time, in her everyday clothes, she's "Mufti".
