A centenarian from Worcestershire has been left waiting for a birthday card from the monarch after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Millicent Goddard celebrated her 100th birthday over the weekend, ahead of the funeral of Her Late Majesty the Queen on Monday.

Because of this, Milly, as she is affectionately known, has not yet received a card from the reigning monarch but is hoping to be one of the first to receive one from King Charles III.

Millicent was born in Lower Moor on Monday September 18, 1922.

She attended Fladbury and Pershore schools before the outbreak of World War Two in 1939.

During the war, one of Milly’s brothers, Ron, served in the army and the other, Ivan, in the Royal Air Force.

Not wanting to be left out, Milly joined the Women’s Royal Naval Service, aged just 18.

She served for four and a half years, two of which she spent at Scapa Flow in the Orkneys, which was Britain’s chief naval base.

Leave to travel home was granted only every 18 months and Milly remembers the arduous journey, first by boat to the mainland, and then hours by train back to Pershore.

She met her future husband, Geoff, in the Anchor Inn at Wyre and was escorted home in 1946.

Two and a half years later they were married in Fladbury Church on 14 August 1948, and honeymooned in Bournemouth.

They celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary in 1998 at the Anchor – the very pub where they had first met.

She is also an avid follower and supporter of Liverpool FC, with her favourite player being Mo Salah.

Today, Milly continues to live independently at her housein Wyre Piddle, which she has called home for the last 74 years.
