The Queen attends a service at Westminster Abbey with the Duchess of Cornwall to mark the 750th anniversary of the re-building of the church. The Queen wore a Stewart Parvin dress and coat in putty grey and fuchsia with a matching hat by Angela Kelly. Camilla, wearing a pale blue crepe dress and coat by Bruce Oldfield and matching hat by Philip Treacy, was greeted by Westminster Sub Dean, the Venerable David Stanton. The service, attended by more than 2,000 people, celebrated 750 years since Edward the Confessor's original church was rebuilt under the reign of King Henry III. The Gothic abbey was consecrated on October 13, 1269.
