VIDEO: The Queen stepping off the Royal Train into Lancaster

Crowds turned up in their hundreds yesterday (Friday May 29) to greet Her Majesty The Queen.

Despite the wet weather the crowds cheered on as Queen Elizabeth II arrived in the city for the first time in 16 years.

Wearing a turquoise outfit by Angela Kelly, her favourite designer, and a Duchy of Lancaster brooch, and carrying a matching umbrella, she was taken by car to the castle.
