THE QUEEN and the Duke of Edinburgh were treated to a rare glimpse of summer sunshine as they met the huge crowds of people who packed the High Street to welcome them.
Among the children who presented flowers to the Queen were Harry, Amber and Freddie Williams and proud mum Kerry Williams told The Standard it was a moment to cherish.
"My daughter told the Queen she was very beautiful and she said thank you very much. She was very good with the children and just a lovely lady," she said.
Eleven-year-old Daniel Walker, from Warndon Villages, was invited over the barriers by Prince Phillip to present his flowers to the Queen.
"My mum kept telling me to jump over and I did and gave my flowers to the Queen and it was really amazing. I said to her welcome to Worcester and she said thank you very much."
Daniel's mum Mo Walker said: "It made me cry when I saw him - I was so proud. We thought we might have a chance to see her but for Daniel to be called over was amazing."
David Payne was honoured for six decades of service to Old Elizabethans Cricket Club by being invited to meet the Queen during a reception at the Guildhall.
"It was exceptional, I didn't know how it was going to work out but I was quite lucky to be on the side the Queen came down and we were introduced to her," he added.
"I nearly had a visit to Buckingham Palace in May as we were on the shortlist but didn't get the call in the end but this has more than made up for the disappointment."
