The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will host a very special tea party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace, to honour the children of those who have died serving in the Armed Forces.

The ‘Party at The Palace’ will take place on 13th May and will be a fun and family focused event featuring live performances, various stalls, games on the lawn and the chance to explore the gardens.

Invites will be issued this week to the children aged up to 18 years of those who have died in service for their country, with each young person accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The party will also be attended by a number of charities which help support families, and specifically children dealing with bereavement, including Child Bereavement UK.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have arranged the event as a way to acknowledge and honour the fact that a number of young children have had to come to terms with the loss of someone very close to them at a young age, having lost a parent in Armed service to the country. Their Royal Highnesses hope the event will provide an opportunity for these children to broaden their support networks amongst other families with similar experiences.
