SCOUT Charlie was honoured to meet ‘Prince Charlie’ when she was presented a top scouting award at Windsor Castle.
Charlie Brennand, from Mirfield, also got to meet TV star and chief scout Bear Grylls, as she accepted the prestigious Queen’s Scout Award.
Prince Charles asked Charlie, 18, what she had done to become a Queen’s Scout, and encouraged her to get other local people involved in scouting.
Charlie’s proud mum Lisa, who is a cub leader at Battyeford Scout Group, said Charlie joined Scouting in 2006.
She said: “But she has been involved in scouting almost all her life, taking part in cub camp with her dad and I since the age of one.
“She’s the only girl in the Battyford Scout group at the moment. She loves it – she was quite a girly-girl before but she’s not so much now.”
After hiking 50 miles, kayaking down the Ardèche river, leading a Beaver pack, and taking part in the World Scout Jamboree, the former New College student was recognised for the award, which is the highest achievement in youth scouting.
