Princess Anne helps close the Save with Stories campaign
The Princess Royal has read Thomas and the Royal Engine to help close the Save with Stories campaign run by Save the Children UK. Princess Anne has been Patron of Save the Children U.K. since 1970 and has travelled across the world to meet with volunteers and organizations dedicated to keeping kids safe, healthy and happy.
The Save with Stories campaign was launched amid the Coronavirus pandemic to help support vulnerable children and families during these particularly challenging times. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had also participated in the campaign in early May when they released a video of Meghan reading Duck, Rabbit to one-year-old Archie.
Several other famous faces appeared reading stories for the campaign among them, David Tennant, Julie Walters, Kate Winslet, Suki Waterhouse and Benedict Cumberbatch. Anne thanked all of those who participated in the Save with Stories campaign and went on to explain a bit more about the vital work that Save the Children U.K. does fo vulnerable families within the U.K.
The video gave a small glimpse into what Princess Anne might be like with her grandchildren, Savannah, Isla, Mia and Lena. She seemed to enjoy herself tremendously and shared some of the illustrations at the beginning of the story declaring that it was "a very colorful book"
Princess Anne has continued to work throughout the pandemic, hosting zoom calls and participating in socially distanced meetings. xx
