Mrs Millett had a party with her family and friends at Mayfield Residential Home, in Fleet Street, Holbeach, where she has been a resident since 2012.

She was born in Leeds in May 1908 when the reigning monarch was King Edward VII – and our present Queen, Edward’s great-granddaughter, sent a card to congratulate Mrs Millett on her birthday.

There was also a card from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith.

Mrs Millett settled in Long Sutton after her husband, Harry, retired as an industrial chemist in 1970 – Harry died in 1998.
