A little girl dressed in pink had the opportunity to become a princess for a day and honor the queen by giving her a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Evie Hayden, a four-year-old from Kent, was selected from the crowd of people to present a bouquet to the Queen in her last public engagement before Christmas. The little girl performed the task with the solemnity that required the event, despite her young age.
Despite the terrible cold that is already felt in the streets of London, since the temperatures that day stayed just above the freezing point, little Evie was rewarded for having had the privilege of personally meeting the sovereign.
The Queen reacted to the presence of the girl with great pleasure and was seen smiling as she accepted the flowers after arriving at the Honorable Society of Lincoln's Inn in London on Thursday, December 13.
The royalty, 92 years old, made her public appearance wearing a vibrant fuchsia ensemble that hardly escaped the eyes of the spectators. The monarch was smiling all the time while greeting the members of the law firm.
The little Evie, who was accompanied by her mother, Michelle, 34 years old, missed the nursery to travel to London and there is no denying that she managed to perform her task perfectly. However, the girl later confessed that all she could think about was that she was freezing.
"I was so cold," she said, her teeth chattering. Although Evie looked beautiful dressed in her pretty pink coat and her dress, she had to show her mettle by enduring the low temperatures of London during the hour that she patiently waited for the monarch.
‘We almost didn’t make it as there were missed trains and a bit of a fall- there’s mud on her tights - but what an incredible experience,’ Michelle, whose husband Steven works nearby, said.
The queen, accompanied by her son, the Duke of York, was visiting the Honorable Society of Lincoln's Inn in London to officially open her new £ 20 million Ashworth Center, built under the historic institution.
Like most of us, Queen Elizabeth II enjoys Christmas and loves to make time to celebrate with her royal staff members. Her Majesty also makes sure that each member of her 550-person staff receives some Christmas gift from her, and she gives it to them personally.
Another lovely story is when Prince Harry honored to met up with the eighty-six-year-old lady who personally served tea to the Queen in 1953.
