It was all about the bees for Queen Camilla on June 14, as she attended the Bees for Development (BFD) Bee Garden Party. It was an occasion dedicated to all things bees and how important these little creatures are to nature and the world around them.
In fact, the Bee Garden Party was a chance to not only raise awareness for what the BFD does, which includes working to "harness the power of bees to achieve less poverty and more biodiversity," but to also raise money for their work.
This is not the first time that the BFD has hosted a Bee Garden Party, with previous parties being attended by people such as Mary Berry and Queen Camilla (before she became queen). Not only did it seem as if the queen was very interested in learning more about the work of the BFD while she was there, as she was seen speaking to a number of attendees, but she also had her own little bee with her.
While wearing a lovely green and white polka dot dress to the event, photographers attending the garden party zoomed in to find a small bee pin on the queen's dress. The small bee could be seen on Queen Camilla's dress near the belt area, with plenty of sparkle and jewels making the tiny pin pop.
Queen Camilla attended a Bee Garden Party to show her support of the bees
According to a tweet from the BFD that was retweeted by the Royal Family, "It was a hive of activity at Malborough House today for a garden party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Bees for Development. Attended by The Queen, Her Majesty met honey producers, artists, and long-term supporters of the charity."
Considering how invested in causes revolving around the environment and sustainability King Charles is, it makes sense that Queen Camilla would also have her own interests in these areas. And bees are definitely a cause that many people can support, especially when the charity in question is doing their part to not only help the bees, but also the people working with them.
Not only do we appreciate the fact that Queen Camilla took the time to attend this event, but we love the fact that she did so while wearing her very own bee pin. It was a cute little touch that added something special to the moment.
