Another, Bethany Howard, from 8th Portsmouth, adds 'I had a wonderful time and it was a great experience.'
The four GB guests, who attended in May, pictured below, had a couple of people spot their uniforms and comment that they used to be in GB or BB - including the person that served their lunch at Westminster Central Hall.
Amanda says 'It was great fun seeing the Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, and Camilla. The surroundings were beautiful and the tea delicious! At such a key time in the life of GB, just before our 125th anniversary next year, it felt important to be visible at such an iconic event.'
Karen, pictured with Hazel below, says 'It was a real honour and pleasure to be able to represent GB at the royal Garden Party. We managed to get really close to the Queen, Prince Philip, and Prince Charles and listen to some of the conversations they had with specific guests. We also were able to talk to a few guests about who we represented and we enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere of being in the grounds of Buckingham Palace on this special occasion.'
