A knitted tribute to Queen Elizabeth II has appeared atop a postbox in Reading.

The late monarch’s crown has been sewn to the lid of the box at the junction of Armour Road and Lower Armour Road, complete with embedded jewels.

A poppy and the dates of The Queens birth and death site next to the crown, surrounded by royal colours.

The artist has included a laminated proverb which reads:

“We are just passing through

“Our purpose here is to observe

“To learn, to grow, to love

“And then we return home.”
