As part of today's visit to Cornwall, the Queen and Prince Philip were driven to Marazion and to St Michael's Mount.
The Queen then followed in the footsteps of Queen Victoria - leaving her royal mark on the famous landmark.
Thousands of people turned out in St Ives today to see the Queen and Prince Philip visit the town for the very first time.
The weather was kind and the showers stayed away, for a trip locals have been waiting 61 years for. And they weren't disappointed.
The Queen and Prince Philip are in Cornwall.
The sun came out for them this morning, as did the crowds, as they took in the sights of St Ives for the very first time. They've also been to visit St Michael's Mount.
