Cllr Conway said: "It was absolutely fantastic and an unforgettable experience.

"The gardens and the palace are absolutely huge and totally stunning.To be sat drinking tea at the palace was quite the experience.

"The Queen walked along the gardens, and although we didn't meet her this time, we were sat very close.

"It was also our 50th wedding anniversary, so what a way to mark the milestone too. It was a wonderful time."
