Queen in the pink for royal baby

The Queen wore pink for a girl as she carried out official duties 250 miles away from her new great-grandchild.

The Duke of York joined his mother in Richmond, North Yorkshire, at a military parade to mark the amalgamation of the Queen's Royal Lancers and the 9th and the 12th Royal (Prince of Wales's). The new regiment will be called The Royal Lancers.

Soldiers marched through the town before entering the grounds of Richmond Castle for the takeover by the new commanding officer.

The Queen was wrapped against the spring chill in a soft wool coat and silk-wool dress by designer Karl Ludwig. A Palace official described the colour as "rose".

Her hat was by Angela Kelly and she wore a brooch of the Queen's Royal Lancers.
