Mayor's robes trumped by Queen's crown

The Mayor may have had the grandeur of the robes but for one day only he was topped by a "royal" visitor to the council offices.

Cllr Stephen Woodliffe and Mayoress, Catharine Woodliffe, were hosts to HRH Doreen, Queen of Boston.

Queen Doreen's VIP visit was her treat for being chosen as Boston's own lookalike Queen on the occasion of celebrations to mark the real Queen's 90th birthday.

Doreen Booth, from Boston, was given a guided introduction to the borough's regalia and then sat down to tea and cakes in the Mayor's parlour with the Mayor and Mayoress and Jenny Elwick, of Boston Town Team and Boston's Queen's birthday celebrations organiser.
