But the fun didn’t stop there, when the monarch encountered a ducked named olive, who broke royal protocol by casually walking ahead of the monarch. The queen was equally amused by the moment, in which the bird seemed oblivious to the importance of the visitor walking behind her.
Farm keeper Maia Gordo noted: ‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and a bizarre moment.
‘I never thought I’d be meeting the Queen and walking a duck with her but it was brilliant, lots and lots of fun.
‘She asked me a little bit about how long Olive had been here, how old she was and she asked me a little bit about my day-to-day job, which was lovely.
‘She seemed really interested in the farm and everything that we do.’
