The Queen was joined by actress Dame Penelope Keith for a Women's Institute meeting this afternoon.
Dame Penelope, 74, gave a question and answer session about acting at the West Newton Village Hall.
Afterwards, Dame Penelope spoke about her experience at the meeting yesterday, which lasted around an hour and a half.
'It was great fun,' she said. 'It was fascinating. I asked people if they wanted to ask me questions, I got asked if had always wanted to be an actress and if I preferred theatre to television.'
Dame Penelope, who is famous for her role as Margo Leadbetter, spoke about her chat with the Queen, who is the branch's honorary president.
