Just to say thankyou for all the lovely messages..it was a fun day. The Queen stood throughout the entire event, and handed out a hundred and two awards, one at a time. She took time to speak to each person individually. Unbelievable stamina and focus,especially when lots of people in the audience were fanning themselves due to the heat level! She said to me "Where  did you get that hat"? And I replied " It’s vintage." "Surely you didn’t expect me to wear one of those awful fascinators"?!
