Hundreds of people lined the streets of Windsor yesterday to see the Queen on a Diamond Jubilee walkabout.

The Queen walked from Windsor Castle to the Guildhall with the Duke of Edinburgh and the event has been billed as a thank you to their neighbours in the Berkshire town.

The Queen met some couples who will be celebrating their diamond wedding anniversaries this year.

David Bosford from Datchet said She asked when our anniversary was.

I told her that my wife was also called Elizabeth and was her namesake.

Windsor has more to look forward to during the celebrations as The Diamond Jubilee Pageant, featuring music, dance, military and equestrian displays, is due to be held between 10th and 13th May at Windsor Castle.
