People lined the streets of Felsted waving Union Jack flags to welcome the arrival of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
The spectators waited for hours to catch a glimpse of the monarch as she arrived at Felsted School on Tuesday for the school’s 450th anniversary celebrations.
Angie Dorrington, whose children used to attend the school, said: “I think it is such an honour that the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have come here today and it is really exciting for everybody. I am proud to be British and proud to have a monarchy!”
As soon as the Queen’s car was in sight, cheers and applause erupted from members of the eagerly-waiting public.
Lesley Taylor, 68, who lives in The Vicarage, Felsted, wouldn’t have missed it for the world. She said: “This is wonderful for the school and the village. To have a monarch come to the area is just amazing.”
