    Hi. Can you please explain the reasoning behind the answer to 1 across. Puzzle No 1219.
    Thanks

      Hi Trea… It’s just a double definition: the word means ‘diplomatic finesse etc’ as well as a treat.

      PS it’s helpful if you post the full wording of the clue in your question. You’ll get a faster response as I don’t have to go and look it up!

    Note a royal with a jewelled headdress.
    Answer: tiara

    Although I immediately got the answer what is the significance of the “note a ” ?

    Thanks

    1. pavlov.a Post author

      Note is TI (in the musical solfa scale) + A + R (royal) + A.

      I hope that helps, Louisa! And thanks for posting the full wording of the clue.
