Meeting the Queen

You are invited

As Queen's Award winners, we were invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen. What an honour.

Invite to Buckingham Palace for Oli Christie

And so we went to the London for an incredible day. Full story here. We drove in our chauffeur-driven car through the gates and into the heart of Buckingham Palace. We were greeted by soldiers in traditional uniform and went upstairs. All very grand.

Pimms o'clock

After some Pimms and a few chats with other Queen's Award winners, we were ushered into another stunning room to meet the Queen. Yes, the Queen! It was weird seeing her around the corner standing there. She's not the tallest, but has an amazing aura.

Here's our CTO Mark Allen meeting the Queen...

Another one of Mark. Doesn't he look happy...

And Oli doing his best to remember to bow. Good job.

Royal flush

We also met Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princess Euganie (big fan of Candy Crush Saga) and Princess Beatrice (not so gamey). So we nearly had the full house - just a bit selfish of William and Kate not to turn up.

Time at the bar

Then it was all over and time to head back home. This is the entrance that we went into at the back of Buckingham Palace.

Oli Christie, CEO of Neon Play commented, "There is no higher honour than meeting The Queen and Mark and I were so proud to represent Neon Play as one of the youngest ever Queen's Award winners and the first mobile game studio in the UK to win the award. It was incredible day that we will never ever forget."
