Release Date: 21 May 2018

A hundred and twenty quizzical guests pitted their wits against each other in a royal rumble for knowledge supremacy all in aid of charity.

The Mayor’s Royal Quiz and accompanying raffle raised £1,605 for the Mayor’s charities: Off the Record (Twickenham), Me, Too and Co and Cavernoma Alliance UK.

Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Lisa Blakemore said:

“It was fantastic to have so many people come along to celebrate Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle by putting their brains to work in aid of some great causes.

“The Royal Quiz was my last fundraising event and I am delighted to have raised this final bit of money for three fantastic causes which I have supported throughout the last year.

“I would like to thank everyone who came along to this event, or any of my events over the last twelve months!”
