The Duke & Duchess of Gloucester host a special garden party at Buckingham Palace in celebration of dogs

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester have hosted a special garden party at Buckingham Palace to mark the 150th anniversary of The Kennel Club.

With the blessing of The King, Their Royal Highnesses welcomed representatives to the Central London residence in celebration of the occasion.

Dogs were not permitted to attend the event, with the exception of registered assistance dogs.

The Kennel Club is the largest organisation in the UK devoted to dog health, welfare and training.

The late Queen Elizabeth II was patron of the club for 70 years.

Joined by Prince Michael of Kent, the Duke & Duchess were photographed meeting some of the guests and the service dogs who had made the journey to Buckingham Palace.
