Our very own Robert Scott is one of the lucky Kiwis to have a photograph taken with the late Queen Elizabeth II when he was a young boy.
The Queen and Prince Philip visited Palmerston North back in February 1977 as part of the New Zealand leg of their Commonwealth tour marking the Queen's Silver (25th) Jubilee.
"I will always treasure this photo. The Queen visited Palmerston North in February 1977. Our cub group went to see her. That's me the 4th cub on the left of her," Robert Scott wrote on Facebook alongside his beautiful photo with Her Majesty.
Robert shared this photograph after the sad news of the Queen passing away on 8th September to honour her and her life.
She came to Palmerston North when I was a cub. We were there at the front of the line. I recall it being so busy and she walked around the square. It was a very hot day," he reminisced.
"She got to our group and had a chat. I can't recall what was said but a photographer from the evening standard took a photo and it was on the front page of the paper the next day. And My parents were very proud," he added.
If you're still wondering which one's Robert Scott, here's a photograph to make it easier for you to spot him.
After Robert shared his lovely memory on Facebook, listeners also shared their memories along with pictures in the comment section.
"I was like you Robert except I was a brownie when she came to Napier. She shook my hand and she said if we get to Queen's Guide which I think was the highest achievement we would no doubt get a signed certificate from Her Royal Highness the Queen herself. I'm so proud to say I did exactly that. It hangs in my lounge with pride," one listener wrote.
"I remember this visit I was at QEC (Queen Elizabeth College) in Palmerston North & our Māori club performed in front of her as she walked through the square. I too have photos of the visit She was definitely one amazing lady " another wrote along with sharing photo from that day.
"You certainly did have an experience of a life time" a third wrote. To which Robert replied, "I sure did".
