Great idea. And the fact that they were delivered by the Queen to Barnardo's makes it that much more special.

I think one of Michael Bond's children joined her for the picnic, if I'm not mistaken.

It was very impressive they got that officer in full Guards uniform to deliver the basket!

I think this is such a lovely way to recycle the Paddingtons. After seeing the video showing how they were cleaned and restored, I wonder how many of the ones that were left at various sites were salvageable, and how many had to be disposed of.

Here's another video of the Paddington Picnic. It's interesting that apparently some very bright person had to come up with the donation idea; it was not just always going to happen this way. (However much I love the idea of hundreds of Paddingtons living royally.)

It was not just always going to happen this way because nobody could have imagined the large number of bears left as tribute at the different palaces. Going forward I'm sure that this will be used as a blueprint for how to handle toys left at the palaces in the same way that for instance flowers used at banquets are donated to different institutions.

That's a beautiful story to bring closure to QEII's Paddington Bears. Hope the parents treasure them to have the memorial toys left at the palace gates become a family heirloom. Queen Elizabeth is now a legend of her times all royals, and presidents, can only hope to be measured against.

Queen Letizia and Queen Máxima will be missing, who for scheduling reasons will not be able to be present.
Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Victoria also appear to be absent.

I do not know if these are causes close to the hearts of Letizia, Maxima, Victoria and M-M, or just a scheduling issue.

Hope they could be present via video conferencing, although I would also love if Spain's Queen Sofia or Princess Leonor mad a surprise substitute appearance on behalf of Queen Letizia

I would certainly not object if any of the "missing" ladies was present but are we sure all or any of them were actually invited? Is there anyone who from their work should obviously be there that isn't?

Crown Princess Victoria is attending the Parliamentary Dinner (Riksdagssupé) in Stockholm, hosted by her father. It's only arranged every fouth year, following a General election, so I think it's seen as prioritized.

A good cause.

Because Corona, and now the economic difficulties in the wake of the war in Ukraine, not to mention Taliban taking over in Afghanistan, has set back the struggle for women's and perhaps especially girl's rights back with years!

I think it is doubtful that the world opinion will feel compelled to genuinely focus on that topic for another year at best.

I agree. It is a very important cause. I will not be shocked to see Crown Princess Mary/The Mary Foundation ramp up their work in this area in 2023 as it is one of her and the foundation's focus areas.
