Sophie and her fellow royals stood in for the Queen following Buckingham Palace's announcement that Her Majesty will not be making an appearance at the annual celebrations this year due to her ongoing mobility issues.

Garden parties are a major part of the royal family's calendar and following two years of cancellations during the pandemic, the royal household is very much looking forward to welcoming guests back.

Traditionally, Her Majesty welcomes over 30,000 guests to spend a relaxed afternoon in the beautiful gardens of her royal residences.

These public events allow the Queen to speak to a broad range of people from all walks of life, all of whom have made a positive impact in their community.

It's been a busy few hours for Sophie, who travelled to Chipping Norton to visit the Charlbury Community Centre earlier in the day.

The royal heard about the community's response to the pandemic, and the support scheme of 200 volunteers who assisted over 600 residents throughout the lockdowns.
