At least since the late Queen's platinum throne jubilee, many associate the cuddly bear with the red hat and the blue jacket too Queen Elizabeth II. (1926-2022).

Camilla among the bears

The Royals have now decided to donate the bears to the children's charity 'Barnado's', whose patron since 2016 is King's wife Camilla (75). Among other things, on Twitter, the royal family shares a photo of Camilla in the midst of numerous bears and writes that these are some of the more than 1,000 teddy bears that were laid in memory of the Queen and are now being donated to the organization.

According to the palace, the bears are said to have been scrubbed 'to look their best before arriving at their new homes'. It goes on to say that it is hoped 'that the teddy bears will be loved by children for many years to come'.
