The inspirational 12-year-old amputee was chosen earlier this year to be among thousands in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Saturday.

Jorja wore an elegant black dress and sparkled alongside her mother, Gabrielle, as they posted pictures in the sunshine on social media.

Jorja also caught the attention of a French news programme that featured her in a report of the day.

The footage showed Jorja speaking with a reporter and showing off her dress before making her way to the event.
