Queen’s Garden Party 2020

Royal Garden Party at Palace of Holyroodhouse 2020

The Lord Lieutenant has been asked by the Lord Chamberlain to submit the names of people who would wish to be invited to a Garden Party to be hosted by Her Majesty The Queen at the Palace of Holyroodhouse on Wednesday 1 July 2020.

We have included a template privacy notice and some notes from our Information Assurance Team which we hope will be useful in light of the changes to General Data Protection Regulations this year.

Please note the following criteria: ,. ; ,s «,,, ,’-*'”

1) It is the Queen’s wish that nominees should NOT have attended a previous Garden Party, as it should be a “once in a lifetime event”

2) Priority will be given to those who LIVE in Glasgow.

3) It is the responsibility of guests to make their OWN travel arrangements.

The Palace encourages single guests to be accompanied, should they wish. The “accompanying person” section of the form should be completed to include details of a companion, friend or relative. Disabled or elderly guests who cannot travel unaided must be accompanied. The accompanying person must be aged 18 years or over and their details must be provided on the attached form in the section headed “accompanying person”.

Each of your nominees may be accompanied by their partner and up to 2 children/stepchildren who must be aged between 18-25 years inclusive on the day of the Garden Party – their age must also be included on the enclosed form.

Should you wish to nominate anyone, please complete the attached form and return it by 14 February 2020. Faxed forms will NOT be considered.

Please return no more than four forms and the number of people nominated should not exceed 12 people.

Please also note that further nominations are not possible at a future date and that late nominations will NOT be considered.

Finally, if more nominations are received than there are places available names will be balloted.

City Chambers, Glasgow G2 1DU Telephone: 0141 287 4001 / 4201 Facsimile: 0141 287 0127 / 4747

Because of difficulties in past years, I must emphasise the following:

a) late nominations will not be considered

b) if more nominations are received than there are places available, names will be balloted

c) faxed forms will not be considered Yours sincerely
