Charlotte Hawkins shares her Prince Philip story
During the event, Charlotte was left awestruck to be in the company of the royal couple.
Meanwhile, at one point, Philip put his hand on her shoulder to tell her something.
But it appeared she was actually in the way of the Queen, as he instructed her to “move over”.
I was completely awestruck that he was speaking to me
Charlotte explained: “I met him back when I was 10 years old in 1983. I was picked to hand out a bouquet of flowers to the Queen at the Maundy service.”
In addition, she said: “I am one of those children in there, anyway, that’s me and my ear is sticking out, which obviously delighted me in all the official photos.
“And the lovely thing is, you look at that photo there and the Duke of Edinburgh actually put his hand on my shoulder to speak to me.
“I was completely awestruck that he was speaking to me.”
However, Charlotte was actually “blocking” the Queen.
The presenter added: “But the words he uttered were, ‘You’re going to need to move to the side because you’re in danger of blocking the Queen’.”
