Queen tickled pink during first visit to Harold Hill
13:16 26 October 2012
Here are the first pictures of the Queen on her maiden visit to Harold Hill.
The royal guest, dressed in light pink, appears to share a joke with one of the welcoming party, outside Drapers’ Academy, in Settle Road.
Excited and patriotic crowds have been gathering outside the school since mid-morning to catch a glimpse of the Queen before her official opening of the new £24million school buildings.
