Birthday celebrations prove a royal success at High Chelmer

Shoppers from across Chelmsford flocked to High Chelmer on Saturday to help celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The centre was a sea of smiles and red, white and blue as the centre welcomed two VIP guests, the Prince & Princess Chelmer.

The royal pair hosted the day and children were invited to play games such as: pin the tail on the corgi, Royal Mail pass the parcel, a royal treasure hunt. The day also featured story time with the Prince and Princess.

As well as the hilarious royal duo their nanny, Nanny McMakeit, was on hand in the crown crafting area teaching youngsters how to create crowns and sceptres fit for royalty.

Carley Beck, High Chelmer Deputy Centre Manager, said she was delighted with the day of royal activity. “Saturday was a great day in the centre. We had children of all ages getting involved and the Prince and Princess Chelmer proved extremely popular with shoppers.

“I’m thrilled that we were able to host such a successful party for Her Majesty and I’m sure she would approve.”
