The Countess and her team set out from the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland last week for the ride in support of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to celebrate the scheme’s 60th anniversary.
Among the people waiting to greet her home as she pedalled through the gates of Buckingham Palace was our Community Ambassador Mary Garley (pictured), one of the invited guests from the Countess’s 70 patronages.
Mary told us: “I had a lovely time at Buckingham Palace and met some great people, especially one girl who survived meningitis aged five months. She now has two degrees and her silver Queen’s Guide medal! And I managed to shake hands with the Countess and have a quick chat.”
