The Royal visitor and the Duke of Edinburgh met the children in the education room of the new Norwich Cathedral hostry and refectory.

YOUNGSTERS from Morley Primary School had a day to remember when they met the Queen during her visit to Norwich on Tuesday.

The Royal visitor and the Duke of Edinburgh met the children in the education room of the new Norwich Cathedral hostry and refectory.

The Queen stopped to admire the work of the children, who were working on pictures of Noah and the flood.

Teacher Teresa Doggett said the names of 20 children had been picked out of a hat at random. “We have talked a little about the visit in school and they have all been so excited,” she said.

Ryan Taaffe-Fowle, eight, was able to show the Queen the drawing he had been working on.

He said: “To see her is a once-in-a- lifetime chance. I was almost at the end of a picture of the flood and she said she liked my rainbow and asked if I had the colours in the right order, which I checked afterwards and I did.”

Nine-year-old Megan Mann was making a model of Noah and his wife, which the Queen said was very good.

Jubilant crowds lined the streets to welcome the Queen on her first official visit to the city for eight years.

The royal party was welcomed to a service of thanksgiving at Norwich Cathedral in the morning to mark the formal opening of the new £12.5m hostry and refectory.

In the afternoon the Queen visited the newly-completed Bradbury Activity Centre at the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind.
