Buckingham Palace is to host a craft and trade fair in its gardens next year.
Queen Elizabeth's official London residence will play host to the Royal Warrant Holders Association's Coronation Festival hosted, which will see Royal Warrant Holders such as Bentley and Land Rover exhibit their goods at the spectacle to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the monarch's coronation.
Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said, 'We are extremely honoured to be invited to take part in the Coronation Festival in the Gardens of Buckingham Palace next year. Jaguar Land Rover is proud to supply Her Majesty The Queen and the royal household and delighted to be an integral part of this country's rich history and heritage.
'We have the rare and enviable distinction of having a full set of all three Royal Warrants of Appointment - a global symbol of quality and excellence of our vehicles. The Coronation Festival will be a very special occasion and gives us the opportunity to showcase the very best in British automotive design and technology.'
The one-off event, which will take place from July 11-14, 2013, will celebrate innovation, excellence and industry through craft and trade by promoting UK businesses nationally and internationally.
Other Royal Warrant Holders - individuals or companies who have supplied goods or services to the households of the queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or Prince Charles for at least five years and are now regarded as hallmarks of quality - due to exhibit their wares at the gardens include Roberts Radio, Worcester Bosch and Austin Reed.
Richard Peck, Secretary of the Royal Warrant Holders Association, said: 'The event will give the British public the opportunity to see the extraordinary quality and variety of skills, craftsmanship and innovation produced by companies here in Britain, presented to the world in a unique showcase.'
