Lindsey said: “We were scouted to perform at the event from when Emerald Storm did a tour back in 2018.

“We usuallly perform Irish fused with tap but within the Queen’s Jubilee we’re going to be doing traditional Irish dancing.

"I couldn’t really take it in before, but it’s only as it’s getting closer and we’re finding out all the details and things, that I’m starting to realise that this is huge, it’s amazing!

"I don’t think I’ll actually believe it though until we’re stood in Windsor gardens and then I’ll be like, wow, what an acheivement!

“What a thing to be a apart of, it’s history.
