Shared Lives South West carers Jeff Stagg and Jason Housden enjoyed a day to remember at a Buckingham Palace Garden Party.
The organisation nominated the carers to attend the glamorous event. It was attended by The Queen, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate, The Earl and Countess of Wessex Prince Edward and Sophie.
“It was incredible, it’s hard to find the words to sum it up,” said Jason, who lives in north Devon.
“As the Royals came out it was like a game of Top Trumps as we had some of the top ones.”
Jeff and Jason, who support Robert, Carolyn, Jill and Tracey through SLSW, dressed in morning suits to mark the occasion.
“We took so many photos. It was an amazing experience,” added Jason.
Every Summer The Queen hosts three garden parties at the palace. The aim is to recognise people who have had positive impact on their local community.
