ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Thousands flocked to various parts of Nottingham on Wednesday (June 13) to see the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they continued the Diamond Jubilee tour in the East Midlands of the UK.
Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, was originally scheduled to take part in the visit but had to cancel as he continues to recover from a bladder infection.
Prince William and wife Kate arrived at Nottingham railway station ahead of the Queen and greeted her as she got off the royal train.
As the Queen got off the train, her grandson was heard to compliment her on her hat, which was made by Rachel Trevor-Morgan. She was wearing a silk tweed double breasted Stewart Parvin coat and shift dress with shades of turquoise, grey and ivory.
The royal party was greeted with cheers at the station concourse where the Queen was inundated with flowers from local children, and were confronted by thousands more well-wishers as they moved to the city center.
A huge cheer went up from the crowd, estimated to be around 20,000, as the Queen and duke and duchess arrived at the Old Market Square in the city center.
The Queen, who looked relaxed and smiled throughout the visit, also talked to people in the square, some of whom arrived at 5am, before the royal party moved into the Council House.
