Isle of Dogs schools join forces for Royal Wedding hat parade and picnic

Two schools on the Isle of Dogs joined forces for their own Royal Wedding party, complete with a hat parade, William and Kate face masks and fake Union Jack tattoos.

Cubitt Town Infant and Junior schools, for ages five to 12, held their celebration last Thursday, one day ahead of the nuptials of the now Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with 611 children joining in the fun.

The schools’ young pupils designed special hats to celebrate the occasion with the help of parents and then went on a parade to show off their creations to the rest of the school.

Children, parents and teachers all joined together for a Royal picnic on the school field, complete with goodie-bags containing treats, special Royal Wedding badges and the press-on Union Jack tattoos.

Teachers also got in on the act by donning masks of Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and the Queen.

Jacqui Jenkins, the school’s parent liaison coordinator, said: “It was a great turnout and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“There was an array of fantastic hats.”
