The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Sherborne this morning as part of their Royal Jubilee tour. They arrived by train at Sherborne Station and then went by car to Sherborne Abbey where a Mad Hatter's Tea Party was awaiting them. The weather just prior to their arrival was atrocious, but the crowds were obviously in a mood to celebrate, and no amount of rain was going to dampen their spirits.
Most people were suitably attired and more than happy to wait in the rain
Taking no chances
All this waiting around calls for a snack
Is my head getting wet?
Boots fit for a Queen
Oh no I hope they won't be late!
Trying to outdo the Queen!
As the VIPs line up this little lad prefers to play in the puddles
The band is in place - it can't be long now
She must be close!
