Royal Garden Parties

Her Majesty the Queen

Members of the public wishing to attend Royal Garden Parties in June and July of this year should apply to the Deputy Governor's Office by Monday, 15 February.

Hosted by Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace, these events are open to citizens or nationals of the Cayman Islands who will be in the UK on the scheduled dates: Tuesday, 22 June; Tuesday 20 July and Thursday 22 July. A few British nationals living overseas may also be included.

Persons who have previously attended a palace garden party are not eligible to reapply. Applicants should further note that submitting an application does not mean that an invitation will automatically follow.

Successful applicants may be accompanied by a spouse or companion aged 18 years or over, and up to two unmarried children aged between 18 and 25 years.

Applicants should provide the following information in writing:

  • surname, forename;
  • title, decorations;
  • occupation;
  • marital status;
  • name of accompanying spouse or companion;
  • names and ages of accompanying children;
  • reliable UK contact address (not the address of a bank or hotel);
  • preferred date of attendance as well as dates that would be inconvenient.

Successful candidates who change their travel plans and are therefore unable to attend must immediately inform the Deputy Governor's office.

Applications should be submitted to the Deputy Governor's Office, addressed to Ms. Betty-Ruth Ebanks or emailed with the relevant information to
