Royal Garden Parties

The Queen hosts Royal Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace every year with about 8,000 people attending each party.

The Lieutenancy assists Buckingham Palace by nominating people from Cornwall who deserve an invitation through their work or voluntary committment.

Anyone can be nominated for a Royal Garden Party as long as they are over 18. If you are aware of someone who has made a major contribution to life in their community or provided exceptional service in some other way you could recommend that they are invited to attend a garden party.

Nominating someone couldn't be easier. Please write to the Lord-Lieutenant or Lieutenancy Office giving a brief outline of the person and why you think they deserve to be invited. The deadline for nominations is the end of October each year.
