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.
