19-year-old Lucy Stafford shares lovely photos she took in Buckingham Palace at a recent garden party.


Lucy displays her exhilaration after attending the royal event as she shared some photos on her Instagram page. The young adult looked pretty in a pink dress with floral embroidery.


Among the photos shared on Strafford's Instagram page is an enchanting image of Prince Williams and Kate Middleton at the garden party. The photo appealed to a lot of the royal couple’s fans as it showed the two in a rare relaxed and romantic mood. The pair looked like they were in a romantic musical.

In the photo, Kate as elegant as ever rocked her pink Alexander McQueen dress with a matching hat while smiling to her husband who rocked a dark dog-tail suit with a matching top hat.


Speaking with “PEOPLE,” Strafford expressed her excitement of being a guest at the queen’s garden party as she recounted her experience gleefully. Lucy said:

“The royal family, including the Queen, circulated the party and were so incredibly kind.”

She went on by saying she had a pleasant conversation with the 93-year-old monarch. The young lady added:

“The Queen reminisced about when she nearly got hit by a cricket ball at a match in 1994. Luckily her bodyguard caught it, or she said she would have been dead!”


Lucy Strafford was an invitee at the Queen’s second garden party of the year as a result of her wonderful initiative of creating “Hospital Love Bundles,” an organization that cheers young people while on admission at the hospital.

The idea cropped up due to her experience at the hospital. Lucy has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which affects her digestive system and which makes her use a wheelchair.

Besides enjoying a nice afternoon tea in the royal gardens among the queen’s 8000 guests, Lucy got to meet Kate Middleton and even chatted with the Duchess of Cambridge.


She told the news outlet:

“Such a lovely day, and I feel so lucky to have been able to attend.”

Strafford’s photo of the Royal couple of Cambridge is such an endearing one as the couple are rarely seen in such light-hearted stance. Another event where the royal pair was captured in adorable photos was the “Middleton ‘Back to Nature’ Garden” in London.

Photos released by Kensington Palace show the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge having pleasant family time with their children. At the opening of the gardens, Middleton had reportedly expressed her opinion about outdoor fun mentioning that such an experience helps in grooming a child for better adulthood. 


Kate reportedly stated:

“I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults.”

The royal family looked charming as they indulged in the wonders of the garden.
