NEXT month the Queen will have been on the throne for a record 70 years – and in that time she has met hundreds of thousands of ordinary folk.
Are YOU one of them? Do you have a story about meeting the Queen you’d like to share?

In 1992, the Sun’s royal photographer Arthur Edwards took this picture of the Queen visiting Alice Frazier’s new home in Washington DC.
He says: “Before the visit, the Secret Service warned everyone to stand still and not to speak or shake hands with Her Majesty until invited.

“Obviously, Alice wasn’t listening because when the Queen entered her home she rushed forward and hugged her.”
Your story needn’t be as dramatic as Alice’s. You could have been introduced to Her Majesty or maybe you spotted her on one of her walkabouts.
Perhaps you got to chat to her by accident.
Our monarch may have presented you with an award or an honour, or you could have encountered her during celebrations for one of her three jubilees so far.
To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we would love to share YOUR memories of meeting the most famous woman in the world.
Arthur says: “Nobody ever forgets the day they met the Queen.”
