Berkhamsted was in full royal fever for a visit by the Queen on Friday (June 6), the patron of Berkhamsted School, as part of celebrations to mark its 475th anniversary.
On arrival, the Queen inspected a guard of honour formed from the school’s Combined Cadet Force, which celebrates its own anniversary – the 125th – this year.
Displays celebrating various aspects of school life were also on show, including choral performances by St Peter’s Church choir featuring pupils from seven local schools and a performance by pupils of an excerpt from their forthcoming production of Disney’s The Lion King Jr.
The Queen later attended a reception and met members of the community, including the heads of local schools and charities, and unveiled a plaque to commemorate the visit.
