The Queen is visiting Leeds today as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK.
The Queen's Birthday Honours List has been published, with singer Joe Longthorne from Hull receiving an MBE.
Following the Diamond Jubilee the Queen is visiting our region.
Nine-year-old Aleesha Cantrell stole the show when the Queen came to Leeds today.
Aleesha, a pupil at Little London Community Primary School, read a poem she'd written to welcome the Queen and Prince Philip to the new Leeds arena.
After meeting her Majesty she said, "The Queen looked really nice but I thought she would be taller."
Security will be tight in the centre of Leeds today ahead of a visit by the Queen. Her Majesty will visit the city's new arena before meeting the construction workers. She'll then make her way to the City Varieties Music Hall as part of her Jubilee tour.
