 Arrival of HM The Queen


Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and other members of the Royal Family arrived. The Queen was extended a warm welcome as she arrived to the Gala Concert.

The Fanfare Trumpeters from the Household Division opened the Gala evening followed by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, one of the most beloved international sopranos and a mentor to young artists, with The National Anthem. This began a musical journey through Britain and the Commonwealth since the Queen's coronation in 1953.
