A delighted Royal fan will enjoy afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace after putting pen to paper and writing to the Queen.

With help from carers Sarah Horsley and Sarah Wilson, Marlene Tallis wrote to the palace earlier in the summer.

And the Newlands Care Home resident was elated when just weeks later a reply came back from the Queen’s lady in waiting, complete with a picture of the royals.

Marlene, 70, will be taken to the palace later in the year.
