It is a great sadness to us, and all the people we work with to hear about the death of Her Majesty yesterday. We have worked to celebrate the life of the Queen, in this, her Platinum Jubilee year, and have previously organised Parties and School workshops for Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle’s Wedding and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations.
Through this work, and the tributes we are now seeing, it is clear people have seen their nation, their community and themselves reflected in some way, finding a place of identity and belonging in the Queen and her family.
