On a glorious May day the Master and Mistress were invited by the Queen to attended a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.
As the Master says, “After lunch with 20 other Masters and Mistresses in the Rembrandt Room at the Reuben’s Hotel (ably arranged by Nick Salter, the Master Actuary and his wife, Susie) we entered Buckingham Palace through the Grosvenor Entrance. We then went through the gardens, past the lake and on to the lawn where we conversed with a number of other guests and enjoyed the cucumber sandwiches, tea and cakes amongst the other delicacies.
On top of that, the icing on the cake was that we got a good close up look at Her Majesty the Queen.
At the end of what was a most glorious and memorable day we exited via the Palace and out through the front entrance during the changing of the Guard. Indeed a great send-off as we then slowly made our way along the Mall.”
