Queen Camilla returns to London for first solo engagement of the summer

Queen Camilla has returned to London to take on her first solo engagement of the summer.

Taking a break from her summer holiday in Scotland, the Queen has made a public appearance during a visit to Ealing to attend the ‘Poetry Together’ recital and tea party.

The Queen joined children and care home residents at Fielding Primary School, where she will also be opening the new library.

The Poetry Together Initiative was launched by Gyles Brandreth in 2019, which was brought together in partnership with Duke’s Education and National Poetry Day.

During the session, school children and older children – some of whom are care home residents – were brought together to learn the same poem for National Poetry Day, which they then recited.

Camilla also had the opportunity to present the cake – which she brought along after it was baked at Buckingham Palace – before cutting it on stage with two special guests, Alice and The Mad Hatter.

At the end of the visit, the new library was opened by the Queen.
