King Charles and Queen Camilla Host Radiant Buckingham Palace Garden Party Celebrating UK’s Creative Arts Industry

London, May 15, 2024, The Europe Today: King Charles and Queen Camilla shone brightly under the sun as they hosted a vibrant garden party at Buckingham Palace today. The event celebrated the UK’s creative arts industry and brought together approximately 4,000 guests from various cultural and artistic fields.

Among the notable attendees were model Kate Moss, comedian Lenny Henry, artist Tracey Emin, and film director Sir Ridley Scott. The gathering aimed to honor the significant contributions of the creative arts to the economy and its vital role in showcasing British culture on the global stage. Tess Daly and Vernon Kay were also among the early arrivals, adding to the event’s star-studded atmosphere.

Proposed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the garden party received enthusiastic support from King Charles, who is well-known for his strong advocacy for the arts. The event featured a diverse array of guests, including prominent figures and those who work behind the scenes in culture, art, heritage, film, TV, radio, and fashion.

Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips was also spotted among the distinguished guests, highlighting the inclusive nature of the celebration.

In addition to the garden party, King Charles and Queen Camilla attended a service of dedication for the Order of the British Empire. The service, held at St. Paul’s Cathedral, saw the King and Queen, dressed in bright red cloaks, joining nearly 2,000 recipients of CBEs, OBEs, MBEs, and British Empire Medals.

This event followed the King and Queen’s absence from Prince Harry’s Invictus Games service at St. Paul’s Cathedral last week. The monarch did not have an opportunity to meet his son, the Duke of Sussex, during his recent trip to the UK to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

Today’s garden party at Buckingham Palace underscored the royal couple’s commitment to celebrating and supporting the UK’s vibrant creative arts sector, further cementing its importance in the cultural and economic fabric of the nation.
