Her Majesty distributes coins during traditional service she first attended as an eight year old princess

 

She was just eight when she first attended the Maundy Day service. The then Princess Elizabeth was photographed in 1935 at Westminster Abbey in her smart bonnet and buttoned-up coat. It would be another 18 years before her coronation. Eighty years on, the Queen yesterday gave out Maundy coins in the pre-Easter tradition. Resplendent in a turquoise coat by Stewart Parvin and matching hat, the Queen was all smiles as she arrived at Sheffield Cathedral for the traditional ceremony. Joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty was there to present 'alms' to 89 women and 89 men, among them D-Day veteran, Denis Gratton.
