A Trio of Royal Ladies Help Barnardo’s Celebrate 150 Years
Charity organisation Barnardo’s has celebrated its 150th anniversary with a special garden party at Buckingham Palace that was attended by the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Alexandra of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester.
The three ladies all looked fabulous in their shades of pink and blue as they mingled with guests that were made up of Barnado’s staff, volunteers and supporters. Amongst them was couturier Bruce Oldfield, who is vice-president of the charity (the Duchess of Cornwall is President).
Camilla – in one her best blush pink outfits matched with an elaborate Philip Treacy hat – even took selfies with some guests, before she cut a celebratory cake watched on by Alexandra and Birgitte, both ladies in blue.
Barnado’s was established in 1866 by Irishman Thomas John Barnardo and provides assistance to the United Kingdom’s “most vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers.”Filed under The United Kingdom
