The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh welcomed the Olympic Torch to Windsor Castle on Monday.
Hello ~ Royal seal of approval for the Olympic torch
In the castle's quadrangle the royal couple watched as 74-year-old Gina Macgregor ran into the open space proudly carrying the flame.
Moments earlier, grey skies which had been threatening all day unleased a torrential downpour. So Mrs Macgregor arrived soaking wet when she was met by the Queen, wearing a rain cape and carrying an umbrella.
Laughing, she told the couple: "I looked fine this morning," to their great amusement.
