Caterers Blue Strawberry, By Word of Mouth and Rhubarb, production companies HRP Event Solutions and White Light, entertainment companies Sternberg Clarke and Young Guns and florists Lavender Green and Simon Lycett have all made it onto the list.

They will supply services across all five venues in the portfolio, which includes the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.

Petra Bones, head of Banqueting House functions and events, said: "We changed our supplier review to a bi-annual process this year to better support our events teams and our suppliers, and have been delighted by the interest and the end results.

"Our nine cross-palace suppliers have won the right to work across all five palaces in our care, and we hope this will improve the client experience and flexibility of the palace events for them. We look forward to working with them and the rest of our partners and suppliers in the year ahead," she added.

Each venue will still feature its own palace-specific supplier list to complement the each site's events and clients and reflect the individual ‘palace personality’.
