On the 24 May 2018 former St Bart’s student, Howard Drury, was presented with his Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award by HRH Princess Eugenie of York, HRH The Earl of Wessex and HRH The Countess of Wessex in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
The special guest speaker was former BBC1 Radio presenter, Emma B. Their Royal Highnesses also talked to the students present about their Gold DofE experiences.
Howard was accompanied by Linnhe Lay, DofE Manager at St Bart’s. Unfortunately, fellow former student, Alexander Forsyth, was unable to collect his award on the day due to exam commitments.
