Jemima Browning,16, goes to Tadcaster Grammar School and sat her chemistry GCSE exam in London this morning ahead of an awards ceremony at St James’ Palace where she met the two princes and received a Diana Legacy Award, set up in memory of their mother in the twentieth anniversary year of her death.

The Press has featured Jemima and her brother, Will, 14, who has Down’s Syndrome, several times before and coverage formed part of the school’s award application.
The pair are on the European Youth Activation Committee representing the Special Olympics in Great Britain because of their involvement with Play Unified, an organisation which joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same sports team.
