This Monday, September 12, the manager of Royal Parks also requested the publicstop depositing “things that aren’t flowers, like teddy bears or balloons”.

On this occasion, the grandmother of princes William and Harry appeared in a two and a half minute sketch with an icon of British literature. He agreed to share tea with the famous teddy bear.
