Care worker spots Queen's face in puddle

A care worker was left speechless when she spotted Britain's Queen Elizabeth's face in a puddle in Wales.

Linda Hough was merrily hanging her wet washing on the line last week when she looked down and saw what appeared to be the 90-year-old monarch on the paving slab.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Ms Hough said: "It had been raining during the early hours of Thursday morning which caused the puddle, as it was drying out in the sun later that day I just spotted this incredible looking silhouette of the Queen... the sort you'd find on our British coins.

"Everything was her from the nose, to the hair and the crown. I took a photograph and showed it to all my work colleagues who all said it was the Queen!"

Meanwhile, the long-reining monarch has just celebrated reaching the ninth decade of her life and, although her official birthday fell on April 21, she was treated to a spectacular horse display at Windsor Castle last weekend.

Elizabeth arrived at the royal residence with her husband Prince Philip in a horse-drawn Scottish state carriage, before she took her seat and watched 900 horses - 10 for each decade of her life - prance around the grounds.

The monarch had a beaming smile plastered across her face as she watched performances from the likes of James Blunt, Gary Barlow, Beverley Knight and Kylie Minogue.

Katherine Jenkins delivered the patriotic song 'I Vow to Thee My Country', while a choir version of the coronation anthem 'Zadoc the Priest' filled the stunning grounds.

Queen Elizabeth's final birthday celebration will take place next month with a Service of Thanksgiving, Trooping the Colour and a huge street party in London.
