The Queen’s Official London residence turned a pleasing shade of pink last night (October 1) – as part of the drive to raise awareness about breast cancer.
At seven o clock sharp, Buckingham Palace, and eight other landmarks, turned were illuminated in pink in an event organised by the Breast Cancer Campaign.
Other buildings included HMS Belfast, Trafalgar Square, Nelson’s Column, The Tower of London, BT Tower, Somerset House, Tower 42 and the Heron Tower.
And VIPs flocked to the viewing party at Tower 42’s Vertigo Bar.
Chief Executive of the BCC, Baroness Delyth Morgan, said:“We’re delighted therefore that Buckingham Palace and other iconic London landmarks have united with us to launch Breast Cancer ‘Action’ Month.
“Throughout October, everyone can do something to help: from wearing it, buying it, turning it or painting it pink, through to encouraging friends and family to be more aware of the signs and symptoms – every action will help move us closer to curing the disease.”
