Every year the Lord-Lieutenant is asked to nominate individuals who may wish to attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. All persons nominated must be British citizens, resident in the United Kingdom and living within the Lieutenancy area of the East Riding of Yorkshire and the City of Kingston upon Hull.
Those nominated are to be drawn from as wide a range as possible and must not have previously attended one of Her Majesty’s Garden Parties.
If you wish to nominate a member of your local community, please write to the Lieutenancy Office with the name of the person you wish to nominate, their correct and full postal address and state why you feel the individual should be considered but please be aware that due to the high number of nominations, we cannot guarantee that your nomination will be successful.
East Riding of Yorkshire
The Lord-Lieutenant will consider the request and, if they feel the nomination is suitable, will write to the nominated individual asking if they would like to attend, the name of their guest and on which date they would like to receive an invitation.
Those nominated on the Lord-Lieutenant’s list will receive an invitation which will be sent directly to their home from the Lord Chamberlain’s Office approximately four to six weeks prior to the date chosen.
