As part of the Diamond Jubilee UK Royal Tour, The Queen visited three different London boroughs on Thursday 29 March – Redbridge and Walthamstow in East London, and Harrow in North London.
The Queen, who was dressed in a patterned cream silk dress, light blue wool crepe coat and matching hat, looked elegant and relaxed.
Thousands of Royal supporters and well-wishers lined the streets as The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Redbridge. Shops and houses along the route were adorned with bunting and Union flags.
Her Majesty was in Redbridge to open a Diamond Jubilee ‘Dry Garden’ at Valentines Park and Mansion, and to visit the London Pride Art and Design exhibition, which features works by renowned artists Lucian Freud, Frances Bacon and David Hockney.
After leaving Redbridge, The Queen and Prince Philip went on to Walthamstow where they were greeted by thousands of school children. The Royal couple attended a Diamond Jubilee celebratory lunch at Waltham Forest Town Hall, where they dined with mayors from across London, religious leaders, business representatives and community workers.
In Harrow The Queen and Prince Philip attended a performance at the multi-faith Krishna Avanti School and viewed a photographic exhibition.
