Hey everyone,

While we may be in the thick of winter, it's time to start planning and reserve your space for some great Royal events this spring and summer! As Canadian citizens you are able to apply to be on The High Commissioner's nomination list for the following events:

Queen's Garden Party
Royal Ascot
Trooping of the Colour

All the files you need can be downloaded from our files section:
http://www.meetup.com/London-Canadian-Expat/files/

Please read the instructions carefully and note the application deadlines, once they're past that is it!

Below are the announcements from the Canadian High Commission:

Queen's Garden Parties:
Dear Sir/Madam,

I am pleased to inform you that the Queen will be hosting two (2) Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace, in London, next year. They will take place on 22nd and 29th May 2012, a few weeks earlier than in previous years.

I understand that a Garden Party will also take place at Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh early July, but I have yet to receive the official notification. Information about this will be sent separately at a later date, therefore if you are interested in applying to attend the Garden Party at Holyroodhouse, please let me know either by email or by indicating your preference on the application form.

Please find attached an application form, along with detailed explanatory notes, which I would ask you to read carefully. Please complete the form in full. Note that applicants must be Canadian citizens.

You may submit your application to my attention by email, fax or post – but please do not send your application by multiple means. You must include a photocopy of your passport and that of your guest. Your application will not be accepted if you do not provide passport photocopies.

In accordance with the rules established by the Palace, if you have attended a Royal Garden Party in the past, whether in London or Edinburgh, you are not eligible to apply for another invitation.

Please return your completed application form to me no later than Tuesday, 31 January 2012. If your application is received after this deadline, it may not be considered.

Kind Regards,
