The Queen cut a colourful figure when she visited a Berkshire primary school celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Dressed in a bright pink coat and hat, she toured King's Court First School in Old Windsor, stopping off at classrooms and meeting pupils on Thursday.

She made the visit after the school, less than four miles from the Queen's official residence of Windsor Castle, invited her to come and celebrate.

Pupils sang the school song and a plaque was unveiled.

One girl even showed the Queen a picture of a crown which she had made during a class project.

Local dignitaries, including Windsor and Maidenhead mayor Catherine Bursnall and Lord Lieutenant for Berkshire Mary Bayliss also attended.
