Running a little behind schedule?

'The Duke of Edinburgh, president of the Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, has approved the following to be commissioners: Professor Sir Richard Brook, OBE, chief executive, Leverhulme Trust; Professor Sir Christopher Frayling, Rector, Royal College of Art; Mr Stuart Corbyn, lately chief executive, Cadogan Estates'
