A seven-year-old girl from Wrexham has become an internet sensation after showcasing her unique costume for school. Florence ‘Florrie’ Roberts decided to go to school in a Welsh Celtic costume after the school had asked pupils to dress as members of the royal family ahead of the Jubilee celebration.
But for Florence and with the aid of her mum, Charlotte Roberts this was an opportunity to go further into the past and dress up as none other than Boudica, also known as Buddug in Welsh. Boudica was a Celtic queen that led a revolt against Roman rule in ancient Britain in AD. 60 or 61.
Charlotte decided to share a photo of her daughter dressed in her costume on Twitter, which has so far garnered over 66,000 likes and reached more than three million users on the social media platform. According to Charlotte Florrie was “so happy” to go to school to show off her costume.

Me and Florrie discussed who she could go as.
“She agreed on Boudica because she was brave and we looked through Google for some ideas and she picked out some ideas from there.

She picked the symbol from some Celtic symbols on Google.
