CHILDREN at a Midlothian nursery have received a royal Diamond Jubilee souvenir.

Youngsters attending Forest Friends Nursery in Roslin have taken delivery of a special message from Buckingham Palace.

The nursery has been taking part in a host of art and crafts activities to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, from decorating the nursery with bunting to drawing pictures and making crowns.

Several weeks ago, three of the children, with the help of nursery staff, wrote a letter to Buckingham Palace, inviting Her Majesty to a tea party.
