A special party is being organized in the grounds of Buckingham Palace for the children of all those who have died serving in the Armed Forces.
The families will attend the party, hosted by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry on Saturday 13th May 2017.
Their Royal Highnesses have arranged the event to acknowledge and honor the fact that young children have had to come to terms with the loss of someone very close to them at a young age. Famous Singer Jess Glynne and ventriloquist Nina Conti will be performing at the event, as will other children’s entertainers and well-known magician Lance Corporal Richard Jones.
The event will be attended by children up to the age of 18 and their parent or guardian.
Representatives from charities such as Child Bereavement UK, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, Winston’s Wish and SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity – will attend and provide practical support on the day.

The Royal Foundation’s Full Effect and Coach Core programmes will also attend to lead workshops in beat-boxing and break-dancing.
