British Queen celebrates


The Duchess of Kent made a rare public appearance to show her support for young musicians and highlight her passion for music. She hosted a special concert at St. James' Palace, along with

her husband, to celebrate and encourage talented performers.

The event was organized in collaboration with the charity Future Talent, which the Duchess helped co-found. Future Talent is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to young individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who aspire to pursue a career in music.

The concert, held on June 8th, 2023, marked a significant milestone for the Duchess, as she was listed in the Court Circular for attending an official event for the first time in nearly five years. This public engagement showcased her ongoing dedication to the field of music.

In addition to supporting young musicians, the Duke and Duchess had another reason to celebrate on that evening. They were commemorating their 62nd wedding anniversary, having tied the knot at York Minister on June 8th, 1961. Photo by  Surtsicna, Wikimedia commons.
