Amanda said: “The day was amazing we waited by the gates of Buckingham Palace it was so exciting.

"We went in, the bands were playing, the royals William and Katie came out at 4pm, it was so nice to see them so close unfortunately I didn't get to talk to them, it was a bit surreal to see them in person.”

She explained that she was nominated by Edenthorpe councillor Anne Flanagan.
