HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
The party took place between 4.00 pm and 6.00 pm, although the Palace gates are open from about 3.00 pm. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, entered the garden at 4.00 pm, when the National Anthem was played by one of the two military bands playing selections of music during the afternoon.
After the playing of the National Anthem, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, together with other members of the Royal Family, circulate among the guests through 'lanes' which are peculiar to Royal garden parties. Each takes a different route and random presentations are made so that everyone has an equal chance of speaking to Her Majesty and members of her family.
The Queen and other members of the Royal Family eventually arrive at the Royal tea tent, where they meet further guests. In the Royal Tent i saw lots of VIPs including the Rwanda , Kenya and Ghana High commissioner
At about 6.00 pm, The Queen and other members of the Royal Family left the garden, when the National Anthem was played to mark the end of the party.
