Camilla personally delivers Paddington toys left as tributes to the late Queen to  Barnardo’s

The queen consort attended a special teddy bear picnic at Barnardo’s nursery today as she handed over Paddington toys left at the royal residences as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II.

The queen consort, elegantly dressed in an emerald green coat for the outing, was beaming when she arrived at Barnardo’s in Bow this morning.

She was accompanied by several staff members, carrying baskets full of stuffed animals.

They were among more than a thousand teddy bears and stuffed animals left outside the monarch’s London residence, as well as at Windsor Castle, in memory of Queen Elizabeth II after her death in September.

Royal officials announced last month that the bears would be cleaned up and distributed to children in need through Barnardo’s, the charity of which she has been a patron for more than 30 years.

Her Majesty arrived in a convoy of electric taxis that transported the toys from Buckingham Palace and Clarence House thanks to the London Taxi Drivers’ Charity for Children, of which she is also a patron.

King Charles’ wife, 75, shared some of the stuffed animals with children supported by the charity.

In 2016, Queen Elizabeth passed patronage of Barnardo’s, which works to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children, to the then Duchess of Cornwall.

During her visit, Camilla joined children supported by Bow Nursery and Barnardo’s staff for the picnic, along with key figures from the world of Paddington.

Paddington film cast members Hugh Bonneville and Madeleine Harris, who play Mr. Brown and Judy Brown respectively, and Paddington author Michael Bond’s daughter Karen Jankel, for whom the original stories were written, also attended the event.

Last month it was announced that more than 1,000 Paddington and tribute teddy bears left behind in London and Windsor would be donated to Barnardo’s Children’s Services.

All of the teddy bears were professionally cleaned prior to delivery, and Her Majesty handed them over to remain with the children at Bow Nursery, while others will be distributed to Barnardo’s-supported children across the country.

As part of the teddy bears’ picnic celebration, Hugh Bonneville will read the story ‘Paddington Takes A Bath’ to children and guests, reflecting the bears’ journey thus far.

Paddington became a totem pole for the Queen in the days after his death because one of his last public appearances was in the delicious skit she filmed with him for his Platinum Jubilee.

The late Queen had charmed viewers with the Jubilee skit that showed her having tea with Paddington at Buckingham Palace, revealing that she kept a jam sandwich in her bag.

The parody was actually filmed, amidst great secrecy, at Windsor Castle, and led to the bears being left alongside flowers in London’s Green Park and Hyde Park after the Queen’s death.

Nearly 200 volunteers collected all the tributes, loading them onto carts drawn by two gray Shire horses.

On October 13, 2022, Camilla was photographed in the Morning Room at Clarence House with some of the hundreds of Paddington and teddy bears that will be donated to Barnardo’s.

Mourners left behind so many soft toys, as well as the character’s beloved jam sandwiches, amid floral tributes that Royal Parks bosses had to urge them to stop.

Prince William later said he was “moved” to see the Paddingtons, admitting: “It’s the things you don’t expect that get to you.”

Ahead of its distribution, Buckingham Palace and Royal Parks released a delightful video and photos showing the bears’ journey from collecting to sorting.

And what better way to bide your time by enjoying all that Buckingham Palace and neighboring Clarence House, where the King and Queen Consort currently reside, have to offer?

One can be seen standing at the entrance to the throne room, while another cheekily jumps at the chance to slide down the railing of the Grand Staircase, something even royal children have probably never had the chance to do.

Paddington also took the opportunity to indulge in some light reading in the Clarence House library. Her title of choice for him? Paddington bathes, of course.

The Queen was a patron of the charity from 1983 to 2016 before handing it over to Camilla, who was already its chairwoman.
