A seven-year-old girl will have a real Royal fan helping her as she gets ready to present a bouquet to the Queen on Monday.
Krissie Thakrar, seven, was picked to present the bouquet after winning a school competition to see who could write the best letter to Her Majesty.
The Queen is due to visit Brigidine School in Kings Road with the Duke of Edinburgh and their grandson the Duke of Cambridge, on the way to unveil a new statue on the adjoining roundabout.
Krissie's letter to the Queen praised Brigidine to the skies - 'especially fish and chips on Friday'.
The runner-up letter writer was 14-year-old Dandy Heffernan.
Brigidine's head of business affairs Dawn Fleming said that Dandy would be helping and supporting Krissie as she got ready for her big moment - particularly when it came to practising how to curtsey.
She said: "Dandy is a great Royal fan and has pictures of the Queen on her bedroom wall."
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
