The Queen's arrival was delayed by almost an hour after bad weather forced the Royal Flight to divert from Enniskillen to Aldergrove Airport, near Belfast.

Hundreds of people lined the streets of Enniskillen to greet the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as they made their way to the cathedral in a chauffeur-driven car.

As well as celebrating her 60-year milestone with the communities of Northern Ireland, her visit will also be marked by a historic handshake with Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness.
