Female PROs get to meet the Queen

Many PR professionals spent this Wednesday pulling off Valentine's-themed stunts.

But Shine Communications MD Rachel Bell and director Julia Newton - plus Fearnhurst PR MD Samantha Fearn - spent their morning practising their curtseys, ahead of a meeting with the Queen.

The trio had the honour of attending a royal 'reception for women in business' - along with X-Factor judge Sharon Osbourne, interior designer Cath Kitson and accessories designer Anya Hindmarch. All were recognised as having made 'a significant contribution to business'.

Fearn says she is unaware who nominated her, adding that the invite 'demonstrated the significance of PR' and was a particular 'step forward' for fashion PR.

We're sure Her Maj would agree.
