Well, would Jubilee-ve it? Lieutenant Kay has a diamond day at Thames river pageant

LIEUTENANT Kay Storey played her part in Sunday’s Diamond Jubilee River Pageant by leading a group of army cadets in a salute to the Queen.

Kay, from Manea, supervised cadets as they helped with the pageant on the River Thames and watched the historic flotilla.

The 39-year-old looked on from a prime spot on Blackfriars Bridge as 1,000 boats, including the Royal Barge, passed underneath.

She led the cadets and some of her fellow instructors in a salute to the Queen and the Royal Family.

Kay said: “It was wonderful not just to have the view that we did, but to be able to salute the Queen and be acknowledged by her was a really proud moment.”

It was not the first time that Kay, who is a member of the City of London and North East Sector Army Cadet Force, has brushed with royalty in her role.

Last year she led cadets selling programmes at the Royal Wedding.
