The Queen visited Leeds and Saltaire on the 19th of July as part of her Diamond Jubilee Tour.
The Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, visited Leeds on Thursday morning.
The first stop for the Royal Couple was the new Leeds Arena that is still under construction. Here the Queen talked with works men and apprentices before sitting down to watch a number of different performances.
They pulled on the Briggate, the main shopping attraction in the city, which was lined with thousands of well-wishers all hoping to catch a glimpse of the Queen. The Queen got out and visited Leeds City Variety’s to watch a performance that was put on by the City Varieties Youth Theatre Company.
Afterwards, the Royal couple headed out onto the streets where they were met with soaring claps and cheers. During the Royal walkabout down Briggate, Prince Philip gave the opportunity to some lucky people to climb over the barriers, with the help of security, and hand the Queen their flowers in person.
Once her time in Leeds was over, she made her way to have lunch at Salts Mill in Saltaire. At the lunch was the Queen, Prince Philip, Lord Mayor of Bradford and other guests.
Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee tour is drawing to a close. She had many visits, including Ireland and Scotland and a number of large events. Once the tour is over in a few days time, the Queen will have some well earned rest and will next be appearing on 27th for the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.
