AFTER being showered with gifts, cards and praise during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the Queen has had another honour bestowed upon her.

The latest addition to the herd at Sheffield’s Whirlow Hall Farm has been given a name which would gain the royal seal of approval from the woman herself.

Staff and volunteers at the farm have christened the newborn calf Lizzie, in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, after being welcomed back to work following the long weekend holiday by the new arrival.

The shorthorn-cross calf was born on Sunday.

Lisa Clowes, fundraiser and events organiser at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust, said: “While Her Majesty the Queen watched the Diamond Jubilee Thames pageant in London on Sunday, a shorthorn-cross calf was born at Whirlow Hall Farm.

“Staff have called her Lizzie, in honour of the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee weekend.”
