Lillian Dickinson meets Her Majesty
Veronica Thomas, 67, has been going to the Randall Close Day Centre in Battersea, a Leonard Cheshire Service, for 20 years.
She presented the Queen with a bouquet of flowers and said: "It was such an honour to meet the Queen and give her the flowers.
"She had a wonderful smile and a really good sense of humour. It was such a privilege to meet her in the flesh and my heart skipped a beat when she was talking to me."
90-year-old Lillian Dickinson has volunteered for the centre for 50 years and was chosen, as one of a select few, to meet the Queen.
She said: "It was a wonderful experience. The Duke of Edinburgh is such a character. When I met Her Majesty I told her she had been a good Queen and that it was an honour to meet her."
