Platinum Jubilee: Isla, three, carries out Royal tour of Stockport dressed as the Queen

For full effect, she has even donned a wig with greying hair to complete her regal look!

An adorable three-year-old girl is delighting elderly people by dressing up as a 'mini queen' and paying 'royal' visits to care homes to celebrate the monarch's Jubilee year.

Little Isla Bates has undertaken a number of “royal engagements” across the north of England, where she has been treading the red carpet and perfecting her regal wave.

The tiny queen enlisted the help of her mum, Alex Fairhurst, to perfect her royal outfit, which includes a salmon pink coat and hat, with a pearl neckless and matching shoes.

For full effect she has even donned a wig with greying hair to complete her look.

And as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, Isla has also been helping to plant trees at care homes, which are dotted around Stockport.

Alex, from Wigan, said her daughter had enjoyed her time visiting the elderly residents, adding she felt “privileged” to take part in the jubilee celebrations.

She said: “Isla thoroughly enjoyed her time at Cheadle Manor and Bramhall Manor, and especially loved dressing up as The Queen.

“It is a real privilege for Isla to be involved in the Platinum Jubilee and by planting the tree she is playing her part in improving the environment and leaving a lasting legacy in Stockport.”

The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, which was introduced for her jubilee year, is designed to enhance the environment and create a legacy in honour of her leadership of the nation.

And at Bramhall Manor, in Stockport, three residents - John Rankin, Richard Dixon and Eric Norcross - helped Isla plant a tree, which was followed by a traditional tea party.

Rowena Bolton, home manager at Cheadle Manor, said: “The residents were thrilled to have a mini-Queen for the day and enjoyed the celebrations. There were smiles all round!”

Isla’s incredible part as the “mini queen” is one of many fun and quirky events that are being held up and down the country during Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee year.

The Queen first came to the throne on February 6, 1952, and has served the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth for the last 70 years.
