Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited Belfast on June 24th. They took in the set of Game of Thrones and the Crumlin Road Jail.

When planning my visit to Belfast I was not aware that the Queen Of England was also planning a visit. The security operation undertaken by the local police did impact on my photographic activities but it was fairly low key and I cannot really complain.
