A north Wembley primary school celebrated the Queen’s birthday with a surprise visit from one of her biggest fans.
Royal collector and Wembley resident Margaret Tyler joined pupils at Byron Court School in Spencer Road, as they celebrated Queen Elizabeth 11 90th birthday party.
The pupils, who were encouraged to dress in red, white and blue, enjoyed a picnic on the school field while listening to the melodic sounds of famous pieces of English music.
They sang a rousing version of happy birthday and the National Anthem.
Fiona Khalfi, a teaching assistant at the school, said: “During the week the children learnt about the British Royal family and their place in history, during the holidays some children created beautiful regal works of art including a corgi, a royal crown fit for the Queen and a Lego Prince William.
“We invited Margaret Tyler, a local resident who has one of the largest private collections of royal memorabilia in the country, to come and share her knowledge of the Royal family with the children, and admire the children’s portraits of the Queen displayed around the school.
“It was a fun packed afternoon enjoyed by all.”
