 They smelt great, and we sent a letter to the palace thanking them, and they sent back that HRH kept that posey with her throughout the day because the scent was 'glorious'!!! And you wonder where I get my inspiration? (From royalty I tell you!)

Just showing off lol, was very jammy tbh, HRH had been to Victoria square in Brum where there were thousands of people with loads of flowers, she then came to the newly built Queen Elizabeth Hospital to officially open it. Mostly it was staff waiting for her, so before we left the house I thought if we take some flowers Jess has a good chance. When we got there I spoke to a lovely female police officer and asked if Jess could give the Queen the bouquet. I found out later the police lady was actually Chief Inspector for the West Mids!!! She spoke to the head of security for the Queen, again a very nice chap, and they arranged it for when she came out of the hospital.

Yeah, was a great moment and got a double spread in the Birmingham evening Mail!

 I only ever met Prince Charles (When he opened a nature reserve at my school) and Prince Philip for my DofE Gold. So she's already gone one better than me!!
