HUDDERSFIELD'S June Hobson met the Queen at Buckingham Palace last night.
She attended a Christmas party for the heroes of 2004.
Stars of charity and community work were among the 500 guests.
June, 46, of Netherton, who took her husband Rob, wrote a diary of her treatment for breast cancer in the Examiner.
Another guest was cross- dressing Turner Prize winner, Grayson Perry.
The potter said he thought the Queen's eyes were going to pop out of her head when he turned up in his latest frock - an above-the-knee blue and pink patterned dress in the style of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
