Everyone in Watford will have their own reflections following the death of the Queen, with some able to recall their meetings with Her Majesty.
Queen Elizabeth II visited the Watford area a number of times during her reign and, with the help of Watford Museum, here is a look back at some of the pictures from those occasions.
Her first visit came before she ascended to the throne when Princess Elizabeth visited the Herts Show in Cassiobury Park in July 1946.
This was the first Hertfordshire agricultural show following the amalgamation of the Herts, Tring and Watford events.
In the afternoon the Princess lunched at Hatfield House.
The Queen’s next visit to Watford was a brief stopover in Christmas 1962 when she alighted the royal train at Watford Junction, received a brief loyal greeting and then left for Windsor by car.
Her Majesty celebrated her Silver Jubilee in 1977 and in that year she visited Rolls Royce to present a Queen’s Award for Industry.
The Queen visited two schools in the Watford area in the 1980s, Parmiter’s School in 1981 and the Royal Caledonian School in Bushey five years later.
Her Majesty was pictured by the Watford Observer in May 2010 when she opened the Joint Headquarters Building in Northwood where she toured the premises and met operations staff.
