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.
Lord St Levan, who looked after one of Cornwall's most famous landmarks for more than 25 years, has died, aged 94.
During his time as custodian of St Michael's Mount, he saw 30,000 people pass through his home each year. He handed over the running of the mount to the National Trust in 1954.
