Morley couple Dennis and Cynthia Marshall had a right royal day at the Queen’s garden party.
Mr Marshall, who was invited along as a thank you for his charity fundraising, said it had been a superb day out.
He said: “What a wonderful day. We travelled down to Buckingham Palace, through the main gates, through the grounds to music played by difference bands and had tea and cakes served to our table.
“Then the National Anthem played and the Queen appeared - she was very small in real life and she was so close I could have reached out and touch her!
“We had more tea and cakes before going back to the hotel and back to reality.
“What a really superb day.”
