CCF at Buckingham Palace

26 May 23

Responding to a request from the Army for cadets to assist with a Gold DofE award ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Year 12’s Izzie and Flo were selected to attend. Izzie reported on the occasion.

We arrived at Buckingham palace at 8.00am, where we were briefed for the day. We started by welcoming the Gold DofE award winners into the palace and handing them programmes. Several speeches were made throughout the day including the Duke of Edinburgh himself, Jill Scott, Charlotte Hawkins and DofE ambassadors.

Our role during these speeches was to line the aisle, as this was where the Duke of Edinburgh walked down speaking to guests. We had to stop the crowd stepping over the boundaries, keeping a safe distance between the public and the Duke of Edinburgh and then lead Prince Edward out of the crowd. We did this for two services during the day, the morning and afternoon and were lucky enough to speak to Prince Edward at the end.
