Today the gates of Buckingham Palace officially opened for the beginning of The Coronation Festival, celebrating 60 years of tradition, innovation and excellence! Our guests for the Royal Preview Day, explored the grounds of the Palace and visited the many Royal Warrant Holder stands across the four featured areas; Food & Drink, Design & Technology, Homes & Gardens and Style, Pursuits & Pastimes.

Her Majesty The Queen, Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke of York, The Earl and Countess of Wessex and The Princess Royal were also present and toured the Festival on the Royal Preview Day, taking in many of the amazing features. They also took time to visit a selection of Royal Warrant holders' stands and spoke to a number of guests in the Gardens.

The day was made all the more perfect with the amazing weather, which is due to continue throughout the weekend.
