Prince Harry to host garden party at Buckingham Palace

By Ainhoa Barcelona

Prince Harry is set to host his first Buckingham Palace garden party on May 30! The redheaded royal will host a special reception in collaboration with The Not Forgotten Association, a national tri-service charity which provides entertainment, leisure and recreation for the serving wounded, injured or sick and for ex-service men and women with disabilities. Guests will be invited in the palace’s gardens for tea, sandwiches and canapés.

The engagement will be of particular interest to Harry, who served in the armed forces for ten years, including two tours in Afghanistan. He qualified as an Apache Aircraft Commander and held the rank of captain. Since leaving, Harry has shown his support for servicemen and women. He launched the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel to compete in different sports. The Prince has taken his tournament from London to Orlando and this year, the games will be held in Toronto, the city where his girlfriend Meghan Markle is based.
