Her Majesty The Queen will be joined by the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family to celebrate this occasion. Their Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry will reside as Joint-Presidents of The Patron’s Lunch; honouring the dedication shown by her Majesty to so many charities and organisations The day itself promises to deliver an electric festival-themed atmosphere that can be enjoyed not only by the guests on The Mall, but also by the general public who will be able to soak up the festivities at large screens situated in the Royal Parks, Green park and St James’s Park
