HRH Princess Beatrice pays surprise visit to Russell House

On 28th June, our patron Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice paid a surprise visit to Russell House to unveil a plaque commemorating the gift of a tree, given by the late Queen on her Platinum Jubilee.

We showed her the keepsake that hangs on the tree in memory of The Queen, on which is inscribed her words: ‘Grief is the price you pay for love.’ The Princess was clearly very touched by this and said how much it meant to her and how her Granny would have been so proud of what we’ve done with our gift to us.

The Princess also met with a group of mums and their rainbow babies and spent time with members of our care team.

After her visit, The Princess attended a lunch at The Three Acres restaurant with some of Forget Me Not’s major donors as well as the former mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Masood Ahmed. In her speech, The Princess reflected on what she had learned during her visit and how Forget Me Not is a truly special and welcoming place.
