The Queen chatted with patients, staff and volunteers as she visited a hospice in Windsor celebrating its 25th anniversary. Thames Hospicecare is a charity providing palliative care for adults with cancer and other life limiting illnesses, including multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.
Among those who spoke to the Queen was patient Nigel Millward, 52, who recalled meeting her 22 years ago. Mr Millward had been a jump judge at the Windsor Park Equestrian Club, and had met the Queen "on a cold, horrible day". She laughed and replied: "Oh, really? It's cold today but not horrible."
