2017 Virginia Association of Broadcasters Award for Outstanding Feature Reporting
Cathy dropped in this past summer on an old friend with a new job. Royal Navy VADM Tony Johnstone-Burt was to have spent three years in Norfolk as Chief of Staff to NATO’s Supreme Allied Command Transformation, but two years into the job, he got a call that would change his life: please come home for a meeting with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. Weeks later, he became the “Master of the Household to the Sovereign,” the operational head of the Royal Household. In a wide ranging conversation in London at St. James Palace (built 1531-1536 by Henry VIII), Cathy asked VADM Johnstone-Burt about life as a trusted member of the Royal family and his family’s fondest memories of Norfolk. (Spoiler alert: the shared joy of Doumars may have been discussed!)
