Queen Visits Margate
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh met artist Tracey Emin today at a recently opened £17 million seaside art gallery.
The royal party learnt about the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate, Kent, named after the artist JMW Turner who was a regular visitor to the resort in the 1800s.
Emin, who was brought up in the resort, met the Queen and Prince Philip at the venue, which opened in April and it is hoped will regenerate one of the most deprived areas in the country.
After a talk on the work of Rodin and Buren, the royal visitors toured the Clore Duffield Learning Studio and visited the North, South and West Galleries.
A plaque was unveiled by the Queen in the reception area before lunch. The day also included a visit to the Cup Cake Shop in the Old Town and a walkabout to learn about regeneration work.
In the afternoon, the royals will head to the RNLI lifeboat station on foot from the art gallery to meet the coxswain, crew, families and volunteers.
Heart Breakfast's James and Charlie were invited to a reception at the Turner. These are Charlie's photos.
