St Albans girl meets Duke of Edinburgh

SCHOOLGIRL Sanaya Khambatta had plenty to talk about when she met Prince Phillip – because she is doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The St Albans Girls School pupil who lives in Park Street met Prince Phillip at a celebration to mark 150 years of Zoroastrianism in the UK at which he was guest of honour.

Sanaya, 15, shook his hand, introduced herself and told him she was doing the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

He was delighted and asked her which school she attended.
