    Penny was one of 15,000 police officers who patrolled the streets of London from 5am where she manned the barriers near Queen Victoria’s Memorial.

    Speaking to PA News at the time, the starlet said: “I think it’s [the same reason] why every officer wanted to be here today, because we swore an oath to the Queen to serve in the office of constable.

    “This is the biggest honour of all. Leading up to that moment, it’s been a very emotional few days. It sort of hit in waves, I think it was just such a shock, it took a while for it to sink in.”
