“Denise got to shake Kate Middleton’s hand and told her how nice she and some of the other ladies looked,” he said.

“The whole afternoon was great with people from all over the world there, some in their national dress.”

He added: “I can honestly say there’s only this county that can do things like this to show a mark of respect for the Queen.”
