An announcement regarding Royal events at the Palace of Holyroodhouse

Published 7 May 2020

For practical reasons in the current circumstances the Garden Party due to be held at the Palace of Holyroodhouse on 1st July will not take place. Guests due to attend will be invited to a Garden Party in 2021. The investiture planned at the Palace of Holyroodhouse on 30th June has been postponed.

Events of this nature often involve considerable planning for attendees. Mindful of current government advice, we have taken this decision to eliminate any uncertainty for guests due to attend.
