Queen tickled pink during first visit to Harold Hill

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.
