Kate Middleton, Prince William And Prince Harry Threw Children's Tea Party And It Brought A Tear To Our Eyes

The royals threw a children's tea party for the children of servicemen who have died in the Armed Forces and we just fell in love with them all over again.


It appears Buckingham Palace dusted off its finest bone china and tea cosies on Saturday afternoon to host a children's tea party for approximately 850 children of servicemen who have died while serving in the Armed Forces.


Welcoming families and children from the likes of Child Bereavement U.K., Scotty's Little Soldiers and Winston's Wish, Prince Harry made an emotional speech about the party, saying:

'Today was organised to celebrate you guys. We're here to remind you that we as a family, and as a nation will never, ever forget the sacrifices that all of you here have made.We wanted to give you an opportunity to know that you are part of, sadly, a very large group of fantastic people.

'The three of us, and all of our family, wanted to thank you so, so much for everything you've done.

'I can assure you that Buckingham Palace gardens have not seen this much fun, ever,' he joked.

Er, you can say that again, Hazza.

Just look how much fun the trio looked to be having with the cupcake decorating station, water-balloon slingshot, plate spinning and face-painting.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a pastel yellow See by Chloe dress, Monsoon grey wedges and peal tear drop earrings for the occasion, while her leading gentlemen donned navy blue blazers and white button-down shirts.


The royal's tea party came exactly one week ahead of Pippa Middleton's wedding to hedge fund financier, James Matthews, at which the trio and Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle, will be in attendance.

The party ended with the RAF Falcons display team parachuting over the roof of the palace and into the gardens.

According to a statement from Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry want to help the children cope with the loss of a parent and help the families build a support network.

'Their Royal Highnesses have arranged the event as a way to acknowledge and honor 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.

'The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry hope the event will provide an opportunity for these children to broaden their support networks amongst other families with similar experiences,' the statement continued.

We think we just fell in love with the Royal Family even more.
