As a mum and grandmother Felicity Kendal is likely to be expecting a treat or two on Sunday. The Rosemary & Thyme actress received an early Mother's Day present on Thursday, however, as twin fairies waved their wands to cast a lucky spell on the TV star.
As guest of honour at an annual Mother's Day lunch in Dublin organised by UNICEF, Felicity was greeted by six-year-old identical twins Victoria and Isabelle O'Connor, dressed for the occasion in matching pink fairy costumes - complete with wings. And the Good Life actress was clearly delighted as the magical duo conjured up a pretty posy of pink roses for her.
The actress, who joins an impressive roll call of stars in supported the lunch, including Vanessa Redgrave and Gabriel Byrne - shared details of her childhood growing up in India with the 270 assembled guests. Proceeds from the fundraising party go towards UNICEF's 'Safe Motherhood' campaign in Pakistan.
