With Queen Elizabeth as their Patron, the Royal Watercolour Society was allocated seats for the great birthday parade held in London to celebrate her 100th birthday. Charlotte Halliday, a member of the Society, recalled the event as ‘wonderful – quite unique of course, not only for the extraordinary variety of the processions and choirs and floats, but for the atmosphere. The affection for the Queen Mother was palpable.’
