Prince Harry at The Not Forgotten Garden Party

Prince Harry met injured and ill servicemen and women and veterans at The Not Forgotten Garden Party on 30 May 2017. The Party is held every year for ex-servicemen and women from across the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.

Each year, the charity organises events for thousands of ex-servicemen and women, including a Christmas party and Garden Party at a Royal residence.

Founded in 1920, The Not Forgotten Association has enjoyed Royal patronage since 1921. The current Patron is The Princess Royal.

Over 2000 guests enjoyed tea and cake in tents around the lawn, while The Band of the Corps of The Royal Engineers played music near the lake in the grounds of the palace.
