That Queen’s Scout Lizette Ordonez met Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Annually, by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen, The Scout Association of the United Kingdom is privileged to hold its annual Parade and Review of Queen’s Scouts in the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle, followed by their National Scout Service in St. George Chapel.

The Parade annually celebrates the achievements of several hundred young men and women, mostly aged 20 – 25, who have recently gained their Queen’s Scout Award.  The review is usually carried out by The Queen Herself or by another member of the Royal Family.  The National Scout Service includes the Renewal of the Scout Promise, as well as re-dedication of our commitment to “Do our Duty to God, our Country, and to help other people”.

In 2007, World Scouting Centenary was celebrated, and to add a special dimension to this annual event, Her Majesty accepted the suggestion that invitations to attend the Parade and Service be extended to Queen’s Scouts from all Commonwealth countries who recently received the award. 

The Scout Association of Belize was privileged to be represented by Queen’s Scout Lizette Ordonez.  In the picture, you can see Her Majesty graciously speaking to Queen’s Scout Ordonez.

 

The event was held on April 22, 2007.
