Year 6 students and teachers from City Academy Whitehawk, Brighton paid a special visit to Buckingham Palace on 26th June, 2015.
After hearing how hard the students had worked in the run up to their final exams, The Duke of York invited them to watch Changing of The Guard at Buckingham Palace and they received a guided tour around The Royal Mews.
Here’s what they thought:
