A crafted tribute to the Queen

DURING her long reign, the Queen was immortalised in all sorts of ways — on stamps, banknotes, tea towels, plates and teacups.

And to mark her platinum jubilee, crafty knitters created postbox toppers featuring the much-loved monarch.

It didn’t take long on Friday for Elizabeth II’s death to be marked with a series of stitches, as this topper in Brinsworth had the letters “RIP” and the Queen’s dates added.
