🎉 Congratulations to our Patron, Her Majesty the Queen, on her Platinum Jubilee! The Queen has had a long-standing personal history with guiding since joining in 1937 at 11 years old alongside her sister, Princess Margaret. The Queen experienced all the fun of guiding and became our patron in 1952 – the same year she took the throne.

💬 Let us know in the comments below how you're celebrating! 👇
