All bears were collected and cleaned
Fate of teddy bears left by tourists in memory of Elizabeth II named
< p>The British Royal Family has officially announced where they will send thousands of teddy bears left in London by tourists who arrived at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
Paddington Bear from the books of Michael Bond is a favorite of millions of Britons. In June, he congratulated Elizabeth II on the 70th anniversary of her reign. Then the queen starred in a video featuring a cartoon character. Just 3 months later, the bear mourned the queen in a short video for her funeral.
On the days of the funeral, the authorities asked subjects not to bring toys. But this call went unheeded, and the royal residences were literally flooded with teddy bears. Hundreds of Britons and funeral guests brought not only flowers and notes, but also toys to Buckingham and Windsor Palaces.
All of them were collected and professionally cleaned to look attractive, according to the royal family. Now the bears are kept in Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and the Royal Parks nursery.
The staff carefully cares for them and prepares for transfer to new owners. These will be patients in children's hospitals throughout the kingdom.
