Happy birthday, your majesty!
Children at Happy Days nursery in Ansdell have been rubbing shoulders with royalty by putting on their own garden party for the Queen’s 90th celebrations.
While Ant & Dec were rolling out the red carpet in London, the children invited their nearest and dearest to celebrate a very special day for our longest-serving monarch.
Dressed in their own royal regalia, the children even received a letter back from Buckingham Palace on the day of the picnic to make it even more special, after they sent the Queen a birthday card to add to the millions sent to het this year.
Parent and grandparents also joined in the activities on the day which included a Royal Football Tournament and games fit for a queen. Crowns made at the nursery were worn by all the children while the “real” members of the royal family also turned up.
Michelle Wood, childcare manager at Ansdell Happy Days Childcare, said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better day for the children and the parents as the sun was shining and there was a real sense of occasion.
“We think it’s really important that children are given lots of opportunities to learn about their culture and we love getting all the parents involved too.
“This year is such a special one for the country and we only felt it was right to put on our own celebration.”
