Queen Elizabeth ‘one of the loveliest people’
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has been praised as “one of the loveliest people”.
The 90-year-old monarch is visiting Dundee on Wednesday (06.07.16) and the Scottish city’s former Lord Provost cherishes his memories of previously showing her around.
John Letford, who served as Lord Provost for 11 years, told the Evening Telegraph: “The Queen is one of the loveliest people you could hope to meet and I am honoured to have been guided her through two of her visits to the city.
“I was involved in both of her Jubilee visits to Dundee and they were absolutely magnificent events.
“Each time she has come to the city has been a fantastic occasion.”
He also expects the Queen to receive a warm reception on her return to the city.
He said: “Everywhere she went she was greeted and she really seemed to appreciate that.
“She had a genuine interest in everything she saw and in everyone she met.
“She is genuinely a very lovely person. I think a lot of people notice that.
“The interest in the royals may waver around these parts but I think the people of Dundee show affection towards the Queen.”
