Queen's Scouts National Review
On April 21, 2013, the Duchess of Cambridge, a volunteer in the Scout Association, attended the National Review of the Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle and the National Scout Service at St. George’s Chapel.
It was a day of celebration, bringing together the Queen’s Scouts and their invited guests to share in the prestigious and special day. The event celebrates the achievements of young people and young adults who have achieved the Queen’s Scout award. This award is gained by carrying out regular community service for a year, learning new skills, completing a four day expedition in unknown terrain; taking part in a residential project and then sharing what has been learned with their peers.
During the event, Kate spent time talking with some of the 400+ Queen’s Scouts from around the UK and the Commonwealth. She also met gallantry award holders, who were nominated for their bravery, heroism and meeting adversity in their everyday lives.
The tradition of the annual celebration event on the grounds Windsor Castle dates back 80 years. Since its inception, tens of thousands of young men and women have been honored with a King’s or Queen’s Scout Award for their own outstanding personal achievements.
