Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

My thoughts are with the Royal family during this challenging time of grief for them all. The Queen was such an inspirational leader and her impact on the World will always be remembered. I am personally proud to have been lucky enough to attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. I was a volunteer with Girlguiding Leicestershire when I was a young leader. I was even given the opportunity to briefly go out into the garden at Buckingham Palace when the Queen arrived and sang the National Anthem along with others attending. This memory is a treasured memory and now even more so.I am also proud to have mentored two young women to achieve their Queens Guide Award and personally achieved my own before this. Thinking of all who have happy memories of the Queen. Also thinking about the BGO International Community as we are watching the events in the UK unfold whilst living away from loved ones. Rest in peace and thank you so much for all you did for Girlguiding.
