The tribute is a nod to the comical sketch the Queen took part in with Paddington Bear to celebrate her platinum jubilee earlier this year. The nation watched Her Majesty interact with the famous bear who is known for his love of marmalade sandwiches.

Bethany and her best friend Daisie Lumsden, who are both pupils at Springfield Primary School, were among the members of the public who attended this afternoon's Royal Proclamation ceremony to announce Charles III officially as the King.

The reading, conducted by the Mayor of Burnley Coun. Cosima Towneley, took place at the Peace Garden outside Burnley Library.

Several people laid floral tributes in memory of the Queen after the moving ceremony.
