Centenary of The Royal Air Force Club

On the 15th October, The Countess of Wessex as Chairman of Women in Business Committee of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award attended a Finance Conference at The Savoy Hotel, Strand, London. I wasn’t able to find any info and I don’t expect any official pictures. I was able to find one shot shared via Twitter.

Also on the 15th, The Earl of Wessex as Honorary Air Commodore of Royal Air Force Waddington, and The Countess of Wessex as Honorary Air Commodore of Royal Air Force Wittering, held a Reception at St James’s Palace to celebrate The Royal Air Force Club‘s Centenary. The Club will also be marking its ‘official’ 100th Birthday on October 30th with a day of celebrations throughout the Club. More about the event after press release:

“The Royal Air Force Club will be proudly celebrating its official Centenary on 30th October 2018 and to help mark the occasion, the first of two Royal Receptions was held on 15th October 2018. Members celebrated the founding of their Club with fellow guests, Trustees and management in the prestigious and historic St James’s Palace at a lunchtime Champagne reception, with Their Royal Highnesses The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO and The Countess of Wessex GCVO in attendance.”

“Following introductions with Club President, Air Marshal Sir David Walker KCVO OBE DL and Vice-Chairman, Air Commodore Rick Peacock-Edwards CBE, AFC, FRAeS, FCIM, RAF (Ret’d), Club CEO and Secretary Miles Pooley FIH MI, Club Manager Kathryn Cooper and Trustees were presented to The Earl and Countess in the Palace’s elegant Throne Room (pictured), before meeting members and guests and learning more about the Club’s unique history.”

In the evening, The Countess of Wessex as Patron of the Wallace Collection Foundation attended a Reception at the Wallace Collection, Hertford House, Manchester Square in London. Again, don’t expect any pictures. That organization never shared anything in the past.
