IT was the proudest moment of her young life.
Six-year-old Isabel Cooper, from Holmbridge presented a bouquet of flowers to the Queen.
The Hinchliffe Mill Junior and Infant school pupil was given the role at special church service in London yesterday.
She is granddaughter of retired clergyman Dean Henry Stapleton, of Honley, who is acting chairman of the Historic Churches Preservation Trust.
The Trust, which celebrates its 50th anniversary and of which the Queen is patron, celebrated with the service at St Bartholomew the Great Church in London's Smithfield.
Isabel is the oldest child of Helen and Benjamin Cooper, of Hollin Brigg Lane, Holmbridge.
She has two brothers, Charles, five, and George, three, and a baby sister Emily, four months.
Mr and Mrs Cooper attended the service with baby Emily to watch Isabel.
Her grandparents Henry and Mary Stapleton live in Honley.
They moved to the area five years ago when Mr Stapleton retired as Dean of Carlisle.
They have another daughter, Janey, who lives near Ripon.
The Trust is the only national charity whose sole purpose is to provide funds for essential repairs to churches and chapels in England and Wales regardless of denomination and grade.
Since it was founded in 1953, the HCPT has awarded more than £23m to some 11,000 churches.
The Queen attended the service with the Duke of Edinburgh.
Former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath was among the 300-strong congregation at the service.
The Duke gave a reading from the Gospel according to St Luke.
The Bishop of London delivered the sermon.
St Bartholomew The Great church, which was founded in 1123, was one of the first churches to receive a grant, 50 years ago.
