The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh received a warm welcome at the Athletes' Village in Dalmarnock today, where one Games delegate said he could "die happy" after meeting Her Majesty.
Solomon Islands chef de mission Ronald Bei Talasasa, who was too small to catch a glimpse of the royal couple when they visited his country in 1974, said: "I love the Queen, I love England. It was a great honour. For me to meet her was a dream. I can now die happy."
The Queen, who was accompanied by Prince Philip, was introduced to athletes and Games volunteers on her visit to the Commonwealth Games Village.
Australian 100m hurdles champion and London 2012 gold medallist, Sally Pearson, spoke of her conversation with the Queen: "She said 'I think you've brought the weather with you' and I told her that I think it's all due to change next week."
Pop princess Kylie stole the show as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The Jamaican sprinter said the only negative at the Commonwealth Games was the weather, as he hailed the "brilliant" event in Glasgow.
Pop princess Kylie will be top of the bill tonight as the Commonwealth Games comes to a close.
