Malala Yousafzai is expected to meet the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace later today, adding another famous name on her global whistle stop tour to fight for young children to have the right to education.

Malala met the Obamas, including eldest daughter Malia (far left), at the White House on October 12.

The schoolgirl has been on a global whistle stop tour, meeting Bono, accepting a Pride of Britain award from David Beckham and chatting with the Obamas at the White House.
