Thousands line the streets to welcome the Queen

Thousands of people lined the streets of Kendal to see the Queen on her visit to the town with the Princess Royal.

They walked around the historic Market Place and met civic officials, cadets, members of the Duke of Lancaster's regiment and the Royal British Legion, before touring a Made in Cumbria stall, where she was presented with local foodstuffs including Kendal Mint Cake.

Among the crowds were visitors from China, Italy and the United States.

The Queen has now left Kendal and is touring the James Cropper paper mill at Burneside.

Later she will take a boat ride on Windermere.
