Yes we are talking Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty opened the Diamond Light Source on the 19 October 2007 unfortunately I did not get to meet her but I did meet and shake hands with the Duke of Edinburgh.





This was the staff entrance for the day and the entrance for guests



 The reception area at Luchtime for invited guests, including me
 The Queen did the official opening on this dais unveiling a sculpture make buy an artiest in Residence




This is another piece of artwork done by the WI which was on show.



The dining area for guests, must admit I did feel a little out  of place with th VIP's






This is the sculpture the queen unveiled on the dais seen earlier, it now stands in the Diamond House Atrium .

The Red Devils rounded the day off.

  2. How cool - did you get a photo of the queen... per my post, I'm looking for a casual photo of her that I might draw a portrait from.

    Seems The Queen as made the rounds under the letter "Q" - thanks for sharing this exciting post.

  4. What a great experience. She is reported to be a very down to earth and easy to talk to lady. Was this the feedback that you received from colleagues?
