A 3-year-old young girl, Isla Bates, who resides in Aston-in-Makerfield, England, has pulled off the Queen’s signature look of a monochromatic hat and coat with pearls adorning her neck. While dressed up as Queen Elizabeth herself, she walked on the road, paying royal courtesy to people. This was her own unique way of marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated publicly in June.
During her walk, she planted trees at every stop to partake in the Queen’s Green Canopy. The Queen’s Green Canopy is a special tree planting initiative created to mark the platinum jubilee anniversary of the Queen. This scheme invites all and sundry all over the United Kingdom to “plant a tree for the jubilee.”
Isla Bates’ itinerary
Isla went to almost a dozen nursing homes in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, and Nottingham, which are managed by NewCare, the company her mother works for. When she got to each of the nursing homes, she walked on a red carpet and shook hands with the residents while mimicking the famous royal wave of the Queen.
