His Majesty The King, accompanied by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and the Duke of Kent, will host a reception for recipients of the King’s Award for Enterprise at Windsor Castle.

During the reception His Majesty will meet winners from across the United Kingdom, many of whom are leading in their fields of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
