The Queen looks at Hereford Cathedral's Mace

Wally was commissioned to make a mace to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Here she looks at it whilst Prince Philip appears to look at Wally with some surprise, and maybe even wild surmise.  Wally, until he saw this photo, was under the illusion that, wearing suit, he was looking smart. That’s the trouble with photos of one self, they always so disappoint.
