A  7 year old schoolgirl will see the front cover she designed for this week’s Radio Times sold in the shops.

Darcey Gurner, of Finchley, who attends Akiva School, in East End Road, beat 10,500 entries to win the magazine’s royal wedding picture competition with a drawing of the royal wedding carriage.
The judges praised Darcey’s design for its inventiveness with artist Sir Peter Blake describing it as “a thoroughly memorable image”. Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton called it “charming” and Education Secretary Michael Gove MP said it was “a spontaneous outburst of celebration and joy”.

Describing her winning cover design, Darcey said: “I can’t believe my picture will be in all the shops. It took a long time to draw because I had to practise doing the carriage in pencil and my mum showed me how to draw block figures.”
