In what was her first lengthy public appearance for a while, the Queen seemed particularly taken with a Loyal Address written by primary schoolchildren from West Norfolk.

In it the children said: "You have shown a caring manner, determination, and dedication to help other people. We think you’re doing a great job! We are very lucky to have had you as our Queen for so long.

"We are proud of you for helping us through this pandemic with your inspirational words, and by your actions setting a good example, especially as the last year has been so hard for you."
