QUEEN ELIZABETH II, PRINCE PHILIP & THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE START U.K. DIAMOND JUBILEE TOUR

Queen Elizabeth II, accompanied by Prince Philip and the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Leicester on March 8, 2012, for the start of the Queen’s U.K. Diamond Jubilee Tour.  The royals traveled to Leicester by train from London’s St. Pancras Station, where they created a stir among the crowds gathered.  The Queen was dressed in a bright pink dress coat and hat trimmed in black by Angela Kelly.  The Duchess of Cambridge chose a striking teal colored peplum suit by L.K. Bennett.  Prince Philip looked in good form, considering his health scare this past Christmas  and the fact that he will be turning 91 in June.  The first stop for the royals in Leicester was De Montfort University where they watched a student fashion show.   They then made their way to Leicester Cathedral to attend a religious service.   The Duchess admitted to missing her husband but she also added that “I’m being well looked after.”  The Diamond Jubilee tour in Leicester was great success, with thousands cheering the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess of Cambridge.  Photos by Bauer Griffin, FameFlynet Pictures, Getty Images and Pacific Coast News.
