Royal Coach Builder Jim Frecklington says Queen Elizabeth II will go down in history as the most “loved and respected” person in the world as he reflects on his close relationship with Her Majesty.
Mr Frecklington was the first Australian to work in The Royal Mews when he left his family farm in Peak Hill in 1972.
He regularly rode horses with the Queen and was asked to travel with Her Majesty to Australia in 1973 to open the Sydney Opera House.
Mr Frecklington described the Queen as a “wonderful person”.

Mr Frecklington also worked as the Royal Family’s Coach Builder, helping construct the immaculate Australian State Coach and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee State Coach.
