Queen Camilla Joins Children For A Special ‘Poetry Together’ Recital

Her Majesty Queen Camilla has joined children and their grandparents for a ‘Poetry Together’ recital and tea party at Fielding Primary School in Ealing, London.

Launched by Gyles Brandreth in 2019, ‘Poetry Together’ empowers kids and the elderly to gain proficiency with a poem by heart together, prior to plunking down to some tea and cut of cake.

More than 800 care homes and schools from around the UK have partaken since its commencement. Schools in Greece, Romania, Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, and the United States also participated last year.

During the visit, The Queen of the United Kingdom watched recitals and gave out certificates, prior to cutting a cake with special guests – Alice and The Mad Hatter – in front of an audience.

The Honey and Cream sponge cake, which was baked at Buckingham Palace, was brought to the school by Her Majesty. Her Majesty then joined children and their families for a tea party.

Having supported the initiative since its launch in 2019, The Queen (as The Duchess of Cornwall) shared her personal recipe for a Victoria Sponge in September 2021 for the Poetry Together tea parties.

Later, in November 2021, The (then) Duchess attended a recital at the Royal Geographic Society in South Kensington.

In 2019, Her Majesty attended the inaugural Poetry Together event at Eaton Square Upper School, where she recited an extract from the poem ‘Matilda’ by heart herself.

Another of Her Majesty’s key focuses is supporting the older generation – encouraging them to stay active, and to feel valued and independent, tackling the isolation and seclusion that many older people can face.
