Royal garden parties
Who gets invited to Royal garden parties?
Three Royal Garden Parties are held at Buckingham Palace every year and about 8000 people attend each party. If you feel that someone in Rutland has made a major contribution to life in the community, or has provided exceptional service in any other way, you could recommend that they are invited to this special event.
To nominate someone for a garden party invitation, please contact the Lord-Lieutenant’s Office.
If you have been invited to a Royal Garden Party get some guidance on what to expect and what to wear from the British Monarchy website.
A personal recollection of attending a Garden Party is available though this link.
