More about the event, from The Scout Association:
The [National Review of Queen’s Scouts] dates back nearly 80 years and recognises the outstanding achievements of both adults and young people through a parade and service held annually within Windsor Castle by gift of Her Majesty the Queen.
It is also a day of celebration, which brings together various groups and their invited guests to share in this prestigious and special event. We have the pleasure of recognising Queen’s Scouts, who have worked hard to achieve the highest youth award within Scouting, and Gallantry award holders, who have been nominated for their bravery and heroism. It will also celebrate adult award holders, who have been recognised for their outstanding contribution to Scouting as a volunteer.
