Kensington Palace: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and
Prince Harry to host ‘Party At The Palace’
Saturday 13th May
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will host a very special tea party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, to honour the children of those who have died serving in the Armed Forces.
The family focused event will feature live performances from Jess Glynne and Nina Conti, as well as children’s entertainers and magician Lance Corporal Richard Jones. There will be a number of stalls where guests can take part in face painting, arts and crafts, science experiments, circus skills and cupcake decorating. The event has been organised by Fait Accompli, and will see members of The Royal Foundation’s Full Effect and Coach Core programmes leading workshops in beatboxing, breakdancing and a number of other sports. The party will conclude with a special display from the RAF Falcons.
Invites have been issued to the children aged up to 18 years of those who have died in service for their country, with each young person accompanied by a parent or guardian. Representatives from charities which help support families and children dealing with bereavement, including Child Bereavement UK, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, Winston’s Wish and SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, will also be attending to provide practical support on the day, and will each have stalls offering more information about the services which they provide to families.
Their Royal Highnesses have arranged the event as a way to acknowledge and honour the fact that a number of young children have had to come to terms with the loss of someone very close to them at a young age.
The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry hope the event will provide an opportunity for these children to broaden their support networks amongst other families with similar experiences.
