Over the last few months, I have been teaching photography to spinal injury patients at Horatio’s Garden, which is a wonderful charity dedicated to creating gardens for spinal injury units nationwide.
Meeting and teaching patients has been incredibly humbling, hearing their stories and watching them exuberantly engage with their new photographic skills.
Horatio’s Garden was established after the tragic death of schoolboy Horatio Chapple, who had envisioned these gardens and who sounds like an extraordinary young man.
HRH Princess Eugenie is patron of the charity, opening this one last year at the Royal Orthopedic Hospital in Stanmore, London.
My first time photographing a Royal, she was delightful, engaging and exuded a gorgeous pregnancy glow.
The visit was also covered by the Daily Mail – Princess Eugenie visited Horatio’s Garden at London Spinal Cord Injury Centre and also by Prima -Princess Eugenie visits the team behind the London Spinal Cord Centre’s brilliant garden
