Thank you to Wendy Cooke of Kookateki Judo Club for sending in the news story below.
Kookateki Judo Club’s Jonathan and Wendy Cooke had the pleasure of attending the Royal Garden Party at Hillsborough Castle, County Down on 14th June 2016.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the guests of honour and left the garden party guests delighted and more than a little star struck on their first visit to Northern Ireland since their wedding.
Everyone grabbed any vantage point to catch what was a rare glimpse of William and Kate as they chatted and mingled. Luckily the rain stayed away and everyone had a lovely afternoon strolling round the gardens.
Around 2,500 guests were invited this year by Northern Ireland Secretary of State Theresa Villiers, with representatives from the voluntary and community sectors, the emergency services and military, local charities and youth organisations among those who attended.
