On Wednesday 21 May, following an elegant afternoon tea at the Ritz, Mrs Severn was delighted to accompany her husband John, a civil servant of more than 40 years, to  the Queen’s garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Mrs Severn thought the reigning monarch looked stunning in her lilac Angela Kelly coat and matching hat whilst the Duke of Edinburgh was suitably dapper in his morning suit.  She was particularly thrilled to have a front row position as the royal couple, along with granddaughter Princess Beatrice, greeted the crowds.
