    The Queen has recollected becoming the first young person in the Commonwealth to receive a junior lifesaving award from the Royal Life Saving Society.

    As a 14-year-old the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth, earned her junior respiration award in February 1941, after completing training at a gentlemen’s club in central London, where she had swimming lessons with her sister Princess Margaret.

    Smiling and looking in good spirits just a few weeks after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, she recalled those days during a conversation with lifeguards, who have been recognised for saving swimmers, and a senior figure from the Royal Life Saving Society.
