Memories of our late Majesty Elizabeth 11


Our Life Vice President Alison Knapp met Queen Elizabeth in 1996 when the Queen Elizabeth Childrens Hospital in Hackney closed, and wards moved to the Royal London Hospital.

” I was in a party of hospital staff and found myself escorting her majesty across Stepney Way, as some others dropped behind us. As the two of us got ready to cross the road, I looked right left and right again and told Her Majesty it was safe to cross! She laughed and said, ” it’s very safe, have you noticed the policemen shoulder to shoulder at either end of the street?” ….. Lots of laughter from us both! ” Alison Knapp
