The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh Host Reception for Team GB: October 23, 2012
Buckingham Palace has announced that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will give a reception for the 2012 Great Britain Olympic Team on 23 October 2012. Further details will be announced in due course.

I wasn't sure where to put this thread - here, in Queen & Prince Philip forum, or in the Olympics forum. I put it here because it is extremely likely other members of the Royal Family will be in attendance as well, and I'm not sure the Olympic Forum will be open by the end of October. However, if mods would like to move this thread, feel free to do that.

at what time will start the reception?

EIIR 10-23-2012 12:59 PM

I believe it's in the early evening, probably around 7pm our time.

Charles and Camilla have pulled out of the reception for Team GB as they were delayed in flying down from Durham in the north-east of England due to fog. They will still be at the Bond premiere, however.

He was co-hosting the event along with the Queen, so I assume he's somewhere there, just no pictures yet.
Similarly, there are no pictures (as of now) of Prince Edward who was also supposed to be there.

Charles and Camilla were to attend but had to change their plans because their plane arrived later then scheduled (because of fog).

Artemisia 10-23-2012 04:16 PM

Princess Eugenie was present too.
You can see her (sort of) in the background of this picture.

Thank you to everyone who shared photos. I wish there were more of HM though.
