The Queen waves during an engagement - At 86 years of age she is the hardest worker I have ever known. Her part in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony was truly fantastic and brought a tear of happiness to my eye! I am very proud to be English and celebrated her Diamond Jubilee celebrations earlier this year too. Long live the Queen!

A torchbearer will carry the flame on to the famous sky-ride at the Heights of Abraham on 29 June. The procession will arrive in Glapwell in the morning before heading to Bolsover, Calow and Chesterfield. The flame will then continue through Matlock, Darley Dale, Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne before arriving in Derby.
