Walesonline reports that Marjorie, who is from Aberdare, used to be in the cardboard box-making business, had imagined that getting a telegram from the Queen, would be the biggest thing she would ever receive in 2016.

Then Marjorie received the invite to take part in a high profile shoot for a new Harvey Nichols campaign, and her life was changed forever.

Rocking Valentino glasses, a Dries Van Noten coat, The Row pants and a Victoria Beckham top, 'Bo' as Majorie is popularly known, was photographed by 'Dazed and Confused' co-founder, Phil Poynter, which made her Vogue's first ever centenarian model to be featured on its pages.

Bo who never goes without her heels and make-up on, found the history making shoot to be a culmination of a very long life spent looking after her appearance.

During her interview, Bo hinted:

"I do things I think a lot of people wouldn't at my age and I've always liked to keep myself looking quite decent, even if I'm not going out."
