HONEY crafted at the Duchess of Cornwall’s home has gone on sale at Fortnum & Mason to support an Oxford children’s hospice.

Her Royal Highness has chosen Helen & Douglas House to benefit from limited edition jars sold at the luxury department store, made by bees in her garden.

Five hundred pots have gone on sale at the famous London store, with all proceeds donated from the £20 price.

As patron of the children’s hospice, based in East Oxford’s Magdalen Road, every December the Duchess invites patients to help decorate her Christmas tree at Clarence House.

Helen & Douglas House chief executive Clare Periton said: “We are very grateful to the Duchess of Cornwall, our patron, for choosing us as the charity to benefit from the sale of her honey this year.

“The money raised will help us provide medical, emotional and practical support to local families to help them deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together.”

The honey was made at Camilla's country estate in Lacock, Wiltshire.

This is the fourth year the Duchess has sold her bees’ produce at the prestigious store, but the first that Helen & Douglas House has been picked as the chosen charity.

The honey went on sale last week and will be available until it sells out, meaning the hospice should get £10,000 if all 500 jars are bought.

It is described by Fortnum & Mason as a ‘light and delicate honey with an irresistible sweet caramel flavour’.

Anthony Brine, who lives in Bicester and receives care at the hospice, was among those who met the Duchess of Cornwall last December.

The six-year-old has a painful genetic condition called recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa, which causes his body to develop blisters inside and out, from any kind of friction.

It is so severe that it is the equivalent of experiencing third degree burns every day.

His mum Daniela Brine said: “His condition was discovered at birth when midwives rubbed his little hands and feet and skin came away.

“He is such a brave little boy and copes with his condition so bravely. He knows what he can and can’t do.

“We love staying at Helen House because the staff are always friendly and helpful.

“Anthony gets to go swimming and enjoys playing with all the amazing toys. He loves making arts and crafts to bring home as memories.”

The hospice had to close its adult services in June due to funding struggles, but continues to support sick children and their families.
