Children from a St Albans primary school sang in front of the Queen in a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey.

Thirty pupils from The Abbey Primary School sang in front of the Royal Family and Theresa May as the Hertfordshire Commonwealth Choir in the service on Monday, March 11.

The choir, which was created by music teacher Marie Price and other staff at the school, sang songs reflecting the 2019 theme ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ and were accompanied by the Dionysus Ensemble.

Headteacher Emma Fenn said: “We had a wonderful day on Monday. This was a special opportunity for our pupils and something that they will remember all their lives.
