William, Harry, Kate host tea party for children of British veterans

William, Harry, Kate host tea party for children of British veterans
Prince William, Prince Harry and Duchess Kate brought the fun to Buckingham Palace as they hosted a tea party for children of British veterans on Saturday.

About 850 kids and teenagers who have lost a parent serving in the Armed Forces were invited to the Party at the Palace event at the royal garden, which featured entertainment from a ventriloquist, magician and more.

Kate, 35, looked gorgeous in a See by Chloe cream lace dress as she talked to the partygoers, while Harry, 32, was a little more hands-on, trying his hand at plate spinning with a little boy who was dressed as Spider-Man.

“Their Royal Highnesses have arranged the event as a way 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,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.

The princes have both spoken about their struggles after the death of their mother, Princess Diana, in 1997, when William was 15 and Harry was 12.

“We're here to celebrate you and to remind you that we as a family, we as a nation, and we up and down the country will never ever forget about the sacrifices that every single one of you have made,” Harry said in a touching speech to the assembled guests.

William’s younger brother admitted in an interview last month that he was “very close to a complete breakdown,” and sought therapy after losing his mom. He says he’s in “a good place” now, according to media reports.
