Queen Elizabeth And Catherine in my Hometown!

I am so excited! On the first leg of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee tour, where she has been joined by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Philip, her first stop is my hometown Leicester!

The Queen & co arrived via British rail from St. Pancras, visited the cathedral, Montfort university and met waiting crowds.

Hi Ruth,

These are great photos!! How exciting that the Queen and Duchess visited your hometown. Long may she reign!

I really love Cate Middleton; she has such fashion sense and really seems to have both feet planted firmly on the ground. I've heard that she has an amazing rapport with people; I think that will serve her well.

Thanks for sharing and have a great day!
