Queen’s visit to Harold Hill: Queen stops to talk to eight-year-old Sophie Milton
An eight-year-old managed to catch the Queen’s eye with a photo of the Diamond Jubilee Party at her school.
Sophie Milton from Pyrgo Priory School in Settle Road, Harold Hill was holding a photograph from the party when the Queen stopped to talk to her.
Sophie said: “She stopped and asked me what the photo was of.
“I told her that it was from our Jubilee party and and she said it looked very nice- I was just really happy.”
Sophie was one of 400 students from her school to wave the Queen off as she left Drapers’ Academy in Settle Road, last Friday.
