Well it’s Maundy Thursday today and Queen Elizabeth is coming to Derby to present the Maundy Money at Derby Cathedral and then she is visiting to Royal Derby Hospital to officially open it.
|A little information about Maundy Thursday: |
Maundy Thursday in the United Kingdom features the Monarch offering Maundy money, also known as Royal Maundy, to selected senior citizens – one man and one woman for each year of the monarch’s age. The Monarch presents each man and woman with a red and white purse during the service. The red purse traditionally contains an allowance for clothing and provisions and the white purse holds Maundy coins to match the monarch’s age
