What a huge honour to be invited to the Royal Garden Party. The weather was kind to us and the sun even came out as we queued to get into the Royal Palace.
I attended with my husband, John and we met some old friends and new acquaintances who shared with us their stories which lead to their invitation, many of which were moving and inspiring.
It was amazing to see the Queen close up and observe her care and interest in those she stopped to speak to during the event.
How do the staff at Buckingham Palace manage to serve piping hot tea and beautiful sandwiches to 4000 people simultaneously?!
It was an amazing honour to be invited.
