OMG I Saw The Queen!

I was in London last week for a talk at the V&A and the ballet, but as I knew that Her Majesty would be at Westminster Abbey for the Bath Service as I arrived in London, I chanced a trek over to the Abbey on foot in the vague hope I may see the Queen leave the Abbey....thankfully I walked instead of taking the bus as the traffic was horrendous.....anyway I got there just in time to see the Queen depart - sadly not walking from the Abbey to her car but from a side entrance actually in her big car.  Had I gone further over on a side road I would have had a better view but I think you can make her out - the fist photo is my original photo and the second is that photo zoomed in/blown up so you can see.....

  1. Well done, it is great to catch a sighting of Her Majesty wearing a tiara! Lots of people get daytime pictures in a day hat, but this is very special!

    1. Thank you Patricia - if only I had been on an earlier train I might have got her arriving which would have been good but must not be too greedy. I was pleased with this shot - especially with a tiara - snatched between passing HGVs!! SAx
