Queen Camilla delivers Paddington bears left after Queen Elizabeth's death to children's charity

Camilla and the Paddington bears arrived in a fleet of London taxis.

The hundreds of Paddington teddy bears left at royal residences following Queen Elizabeth II's death in September have found a new home.

The teddy bears were hand-delivered Thursday by Camilla, the Queen Consort, to Barnardo's, a children's charity that will distribute the bears to kids in need across the United Kingdom.

Camilla — who was given the role of royal patron of Barnado's in 2016 by the queen — arrived to Barnardo's Bow Nursery school in East London in a fleet of taxis, along with the bears.

The taxis were symbolic because taxi drivers in the U.K. often transport children to and from the hospital for free.

Earlier this month, the bears, each in their signature blue duffle coats and red bucket hats, got to explore the inside of two royal residences, Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.

The royal family's official Twitter account shared a video showing the bears' journey from outside to inside the palaces.

“They have been doing some light reading at Clarence House,” the video noted at one point, “and exploring the Buckingham Palace State Rooms.”
