Two St John Ambulance cadets attended a Buckingham Palace reception for young people who gained the top Grand Prior Award.
Jessica Clague, of Douglas Nursing Cadet Division, and Natasha Poole, of Onchan Division, spoke to Princess Anne.
Jessica said: ‘Her Royal Highness was very nice and down to earth, asking us all about our thoughts on being a member of St John Ambulance and how we completed our Grand Prior.
‘We all enjoyed the day and made a lot of new friends from other counties. It was definitely an experience not to be missed.’
