A farmhouse restaurant in Prince George’s County is closing its doors after a deadly Bumble bee attack, The Washington Post reported.
A family of four were staying at the King and Queen’s farmhouse in Farmington, Maryland, when the bee bit a family member, the Post reported on Thursday.
The Beekeepers Association of America issued a statement on Friday that said it is “deeply saddened by this tragic loss of life and is working to establish an immediate and effective support system for those impacted.”
The farmhouse, which opened in 1883, has been a popular spot for weddings and other events.
It is known for its berry farm, which has been visited by Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip.
“We’re deeply saddened by the tragic loss,” the farmhouse said in a statement.
“The King and Queens family are deeply saddened and our hearts go out to the family at this time.”
