Yesterday we got dolled up and spent the afternoon being typically British, drinking tea, eating shortbread and curtseying to our future Queen and their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Their Royal Highnesses attended the Dulwich Picture Gallery for an event supporting Great Art Quest, a project run by The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts. The visit also highlighted Children & the Arts’ Face Britain project, which has been brought to life by none other than our very selves.
During their visit to the gallery, Their Royal Highnesses chatted to the kids, artists and storytellers involved with the project, and heard from teachers about how the project has benefited both learning and personal development in children.What were they like I bet you want to know? Well, I can’t tell you how they take their tea or if they watch Eastenders, but they were awesome and they have a real passion for the arts. Also, Kate’s dress put mine to shame, darn! It gave us all an amazing buzz to know that what we’ve been doing for Face Britain and all this hard work has really paid off and made a difference in so many kids and seeing their beautiful, smiling faces when they got to show off their work just made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
The deadline for entries is just fifteen days away so get the kids involved and let them be part of history. Their sunny portraits will be made into a mosaic of Her Majesty The Queen and projected on Buckinbgham Palace for three consecutive nights in April and displayed live onto screens up and down the country.
