Huge crowds turned out to see the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they arrived in Nottingham on the latest leg of the Diamond Jubilee tour on Wednesday.
William and Kate arrived at the city's station by car and met dignitaries ahead of the arrival of the Queen on the Royal Train.
A huge cheer went up from the crowd, estimated to be around 20,000, as the royal party arrived at the Old Market Square in the city centre.
Kate, who wore a blue teal coat by Missoni and matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, smiled and chatted as she shook hands with the crowd.
The Queen also talked to people in the square, some of whom arrived at 5am, before the royal party moved into the Council House.
They appeared a few minutes later on the balcony of the building to a huge cheer while the national anthem was played.
Inside the Council House, the royal party attended a reception with invited guests and dignitaries from Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
The Duke of Edinburgh was originally scheduled to join the Queen,William and Kate on the trip but has had to cancel as he continues to recover from a bladder infection.
