It was a privilege for the Regent Hall Band (Bandmaster Stephen Hanover) to participate in the celebrations at the Fortnum and Mason store on Piccadilly on 1 March 2012. The Queen was accompanied by the Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge (also known as Camilla and Catherine) for the first time, generating mass media interest.
Piccadilly and Fortnums have both undergone regeneration work and a plaque was unveiled celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
A small group from the Regent Hall Band was asked to provide the musical backdrop for the event and kept the crowed entertained as the Queen and the duchesses checked out the new tea room.
