That time the queen and her consort walked through Boston City Hall

Queen Elizabeth, Kevin White and Prince Philip

In 1976, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited Boston as part of her tour of the former colonies on the 200th anniversary of that unpleasantness. Then, as always, the prince had to walk behind the queen, and, in this case, behind even Kevin White, on a tour of City Hall (he's walking with Kitty Dukakis). In addition to marveling at all that brutalist concrete, the queen and the prince got to enjoy cake.

Fixed. They wore similar hats that day, but, yes, Dukakis was in the darker hat.
