Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, she arrived at Snow Hill Station and began her visit in Victoria Square before a short tour of the city centre.

The royal party then continued to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham where a piece of glasswork was unveiled as part of the naming ceremony.

The £545m building was opened to patients in June 2010.

The Queen met members of the hospital staff before being welcomed by Dame Julie Moore, chief executive of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and Sir Albert Bore, chairman of the trust.

LOL I just read 'shot tour' rather then 'short tour'
Al of a sudden the image of HM and Philip going from one pub to the next for a shot of whiskey/gin/rum/vodka/whatever liqueur was crammed in my mind for some reason! laugh
