The Queen kick-started her Diamond Jubilee tour of Manchester and Salford at Manchester Victoria Station earlier this morning.
Her Majesty was greeted by cheering crowds and rousing choruses of God Save the Queen.
She is wearing a ‘dusty pink’ coat, with a matching hat with white netting and a flower.
The royal party is now en route to the Royal Manchester Eye Hospital.
