The Queen has welcomed the Olympic Torch into Windsor Castle.
She was joined by Prince Philip as the procession arrived at the Royal residence.
The torch was carried into the castle by netball player and coach Gina MacGregor MBE, who greeted the Queen by complaining about the weather.
She said: "It's English weather isn't it? You can't do anything about it."
The Queen replied: "No nothing."
After a smile, the Queen was curious to know more about the torch, asking: "What keeps it going?"
Today's relay was started by Sir Roger Bannister in the Oxford stadium where he famously broke the four minute mile, before being handed over to Sir Steve Redgrave who rowed with the torch down the Thames.
Raymond Blanc and Heston Blumenthal also had their chance to join the procession.
