The Queen will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee in Henley today with 4,000 people.
The garden party has been organised by the Lord Lieutenants of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire, people living in these counties were able to apply for tickets.
Lorraine France from Chackmore near Buckingham put her name down for tickets and was one of the lucky ones selected:
"When I saw the opportunity to enter the ballet I just thought how exciting it would be to go to something like that so I just entered and didn't think anything more about it until I got a phone call to say that my ticket had been drawn out"
Lorraine's ticket was the 60th to be chosen out of the hat and because the party is marking Her Majesty's 60 years on the throne, Lorraine and her husband will be presented to the Queen.
"That was the biggest shock of all actually because I was very excited just at the thought of having been invited to the garden party but when they added that bit in I was over the moon really just couldn't believe it, I couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the evening"
Lorraine told Heart she's excited but a little bit apprehensive about meeting the Queen
