Last April, Boris was just another ex-Minister of the Crown, amongst many. It would have been "most irregular" to have invited him then, giving the appearance of bestowing Royal Favour upon one of many aspirants to High Office. Now had he been a hunting, gambling, drinking buddy of the Prince Philip up for a merry jaunt that might have been another matter, but AFAIK he doesn't even own a horse! What a Cad!
