The ‘Party at The Palace’ will take place on Saturday 13th May and will be ‘a fun and family focused event’ reads the Kensington Palace announcement. The afternoon’s events will include live performances, fair-like stalls, games and exploration of Buckingham Palace’s gardens.

Invites – like the one seen here – have been sent to children 18 and under, who have a parent that died in service for their country. As a guest at the party, they will each bring a parent or guardian.

Charities which help such families will also join the event, including Prince William’s patronage, Child Bereavement UK.

The Palace statement says that William, Catherine and Harry arranged the event to acknowledge and honour 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, having lost a parent in Armed service to the country.

Such a party, the Royal trio hopes, will provide an opportunity for these children and families to broaden their support networks who have experienced such a hardship.
