Eight lucky pupils from Lealands High School were invited to take part in the Commonwealth Day Observance Service in Westminster Abbey.

It was attended by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as representatives from 53 Commonwealth countries, senior politicians and more than 1,000 young people.

The theme for this year’s service was ‘A young Commonwealth,’ emphasising the fact that youngsters aged 25 or under account for the majority of the Commonwealth’s population.
