Olympic and Paralympic heroes set for Royal reception

Team GB's Olympic and Paralympic heroes are set to attend a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace next week.

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, The Duke of York, Princess Eugenie and The Princess Royal at the palace to celebrate the achievements of Great Britain's Rio 2016 medallists on Tuesday, October 18.

Team GB took home 67 medals, including 27 gold, from the Olympics and 147 medals, 64 of which were gold, from the Paralympics.

It was hugely successful summer for competitors from the East Berkshire and South Bucks area, with Katherine Grainger, Kate Richardson-Walsh, Helen Glover and Jeanette Chippington among the medal winners.
