A 1931 Buckingham Palace garden party invitation sent by The Lord Chamberlain on behalf of 'their majesties' (King George V and Queen Mary) to Mr and Mrs Gypsy Smith. At the time, royal garden parties were still regarded as the highlight of the social calendar, and the invitation is indicative of the high regard in which Gypsy was held. He and his wife had also been invited the year before, see also 1993/854/1 in the Online Collection.
