Three students with special educational needs on work placements at the Yurt Café at the Royal Foundation of St Katherine's got a surprise when HRH The Duchess of Cornwall popped into the café for some tea and conversation.

The students all from Langdon Park School in Poplar, are two months into a 9-month work placement at the Yurt Café supported by Job Coaches from East London’s award-winning Job Enterprise and Training Service.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall spoke to the young people about their work placements and their aspirations for employment in the hospitality sector and HRH offered the young people advice around how to make the perfect cuppa.

The students were thrilled with the visit and can now put on their CV that they have served royalty and can make tea fit for a Duchess.
