The young royals stick together: Prince William (41) held a garden party in front of Buckingham Palace on Tuesday (May 21st). He had to live without his wife Princess Kate (42) and his father King Charles III. (75).

Instead, he was supported by his cousins ​​Princess Beatrice (35), Princess Eugenie (34) and Zara Tindall (43) – accompanied by her husband Mike Tindall (45) – as well as cousin Peter Phillips (46). The cousin of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) and his wife, the Duke (79) and the Duchess of Gloucester (77), were also present.

The members of the Royal Family braved the pouring rain in London and greeted guests on the lawn of Buckingham Palace in a good mood and with umbrellas in hand. According to the Daily Mail, the guests included members of a number of charities and associations close to Prince William and his wife’s hearts, such as Swim England and the Homewards Initiative.

Last Wednesday (May 15th) King Charles himself held a garden party in front of Buckingham Palace. The King and Queen Camilla (76) took this as an opportunity to “celebrate the creative industries,” as they said on Instagram. Some presenters and actors were among the prominent guests. Charles often transfers responsibility for the traditional event to family members, who then organize the annual garden parties and, for example, dedicate them to charities with which they are closely connected.

According to the Daily Mail, every appointment for the British monarch is currently being carefully considered in order to meet Charles’ desire to work despite his cancer. For example, on Monday he didn’t miss the opportunity to visit the traditional Chelsea Flower Show. After all, a few days ago he was appointed the new patron of the Royal Horticultural Society, the organizer of the garden show. He was accompanied on his visit by his wife Queen Camilla.
