^ The Crown Prince of Dubai was present this year too. They and other sheikhs from the Gulf states/Middle East are quite close to the BRF, and to Prince Charles in particular. They come and bring their families and enjoy Ascot. Sometimes sons go to Sandhurst, like the King of Jordan's son.

Thanks iceflower!

People were again out in force to see HM, and (as usual) they didn't know that she stopped with walkabouts in 2013 due to her age, but she made an exception (as she also did for her 90th birthday in 2016 and her visit to Leicester for the Maundy Service earlier this year) and went on a short walkabout to collect some flowers:

A live-article from Hull Daily Mail with several videos and pictures from today's amazing visit:
Live updates as The Queen visits Hull in our City of Culture year - Hull Daily Mail

Two articles about what people felt when they saw (or spoke with) Her Majesty - really worth a read:
'A day to remember' - crowds delight as hundreds pack out Hull Paragon to meet the Queen - Hull Daily Mail

'I used to be a mechanic': Queen reminisces with Siemens workers on visit to Hull factory - Hull Daily Mail

A short video of the walkabout:

It may be approaching winter in Hull but with the Queen's visit, there were nothing but warm smiles all around. Every picture in the articles show a 91 year old woman bright eyed and smiling wide and very interested in where she was and who she was meeting.

Thanks for the articles Royal Norway!
