Britain's Queen Elizabeth visits Fortnum and Mason joined by Camilla and Catherine

The British Royal trio made of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit this morning, Thursday March 1st at the famous Fortnum & Mason store being joined by a small crowd gathered outside the building in central London.


The three Royals, dressed in shades of blue for the visit, had viewed the Diamond Jubilee product ranges, met staff and unveiled a plaque for the regeneration of Piccadilly. The Queen wore a pale blue outfit with a matching hat, while Camilla was dressed in a navy blue coat with white horizontal stripes at the top. Meanwhile Catherine, wearing a mid-blue, above-the-knee coat, looked dazzling while chatted to London mayor Boris Johnson, who was among dignitaries greeting the royal guests.


The Queen also greeted recipients of grants from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (Qest) - the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holders Association. Qest makes awards ranging up to £15,000 to craftsmen and women of all ages to help them further their careers.


It was established in 1990 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Association and the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and since 1991 has awarded £1.5 million to 242 craftspeople aged between 17 and 50-plus for study, training and work experience.
