Llandaff Cathedral, The Queen, Llandaff, CARDIFF, Edinburgh
QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE VISIT TO CARDIFF. APRIL, 2012: The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on a visit to Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff. *IT HAD been 52 years since the Queen first set foot on the hallowed grounds of Llandaff Cathedral as the reigning monarch. And as she stepped out of the royal Bentley with the Duke of Edinburgh yesterday, she was given a warm reception that reflected the admiration many hold for her 60 years on the throne. Crowds of schoolchildren and well-wishers decked in Union flags and Welsh flags lined Llandaff High Street as the royal procession arrived, while the Royal Standard was raised above the historic cathedral. Marking the start of a two-day Diamond Jubilee tour of Wales, the Queen arrived a minute early in Llandaff after taking the train to Cardiff Central station. She was greeted at 10.34am at the entrance of the cathedral by the Dean of Llandaff, the Very Reverend John Lewis, and the Lord Lieutenant of South Glamorgan, Dr Peter Beck. There, the 86-year-old monarch was introduced to the Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, before walking into the service of thanksgiving in honour of her 60-year reign. 26th, April, 2012.
