Two sisters from Muswell Hill were lucky enough to meet the Queen last Wednesday after playing a pivotal role in publication of a book about an adoption pioneer.

Lotte and Lusha Rometsch, aged 9 and 6, reviewed the book about Captain Thomas Coram, who established the Foundling Hospital and helped author Robin Ollington refine the children’s story.

Lotte told the Queen what she liked about the book. She said: “I most enjoyed the fact that the children all had good life opportunities when they were older.

“Before I read it I didn’t know anything about Thomas Coram, and after I read it I knew his whole story.”

The event was held by charity Coram (formerly the British Association for Adoption and Fostering) who published the book, which will be distributed to every primary school and library in England.
