Camilla’s cheeky moment with young boy while giving out Paddington bears at Bow nursery


The Queen Consort was visiting the east London nursery on behalf of children’s charity Barnardo’s, which she has been patron of since 2016.

The toys were left by the public at royal residences after the Queen’s death in September.

Camilla met dozens of children cared for by the Barnardo’s charity at Bow Nursery.

She was joined by Paddington film stars Hugh Bonneville and Madeleine Harris.

During her visit to Barnardo’s Charity at Bow Day Nursery in East London, she met three-year-old Oscar Imerwood, who made a hilarious comment.

Apart from distributing the toys to the children, the Queen Consort also had marmalade sandwiches with the kids.

During the Queen Consort’s visit, she gave little Noa Nkemadirim a hug and spent time with a group of children at a table.

She then chatted with a circle of older children who were playing with blue foam, and asked them: “What are we doing here? Making a mess. We love a bit of mess.”

While the 40 children tucked into their marmalade sandwiches, Oscar declared: “I don’t like marmalade!”

When handing out the teddies, Camilla also told the children to put the tiny boots on their Paddington bears “otherwise he won’t be able to go outside”.

Hugh Bonneville, who plays Mr Brown in the Paddington films, also read Bond’s story “Paddington Takes a Bath” to the children.

As she stood to depart, Camilla told the children and their carers: “It has been a pleasure to find a home for these bears, please look after them carefully.”

Camilla had travelled to the nursery in a car filled with some of the Paddingtons, on a journey from Clarence House in Westminster, along the Mall and past London landmarks including Trafalgar Square and Tower Bridge.

The visit came after Camilla was pictured surrounded by teddies in a photo taken on October 13 to mark the 64th anniversary of the publication of the first Paddington Bear book.

The Royal Family has donated more than 1,000 bears to Barnardo’s and each toy was professionally cleaned before being delivered to the charity.
