The Queen featured on the front of most newspapers today. She was pictured standing in the moat at The Tower Of London, amidst a sea of red poppies.
It is the magnificent art installation, ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’, created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper.
On the 11th November the moat will be filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies, one for each British fatality during The First World War.
The poppies are for sale (when I last checked, they were all sold), and the money raised will be shared equally amongst six service charities.
I took my children to see it. It is extremely moving, and none of the photographs you have seen do it justice.
