SOME of the best the Isle of Wight has to offer was on show today (Wednesday) as the Queen visited Cowes.
Among the highlights of her visit was a performance by Cowes Primary School children of a special song written by music teacher Becky Bevan, captured by County Press reporter Jamie White in one of the videos below.
After the performance, on The Parade, Becky said: "It was an amazing moment to meet the Queen, there really is nothing better. It makes me very proud to be an Islander."
At Cowes Yacht Haven, the Queen met representatives of groups and charities including Dame Ellen MacArthur, who spoke about the work done by the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.
Other groups included the Association of Sail Training Organisations, Cowes and Ryde Sea Cadets, the Maritime Volunteer Service, Sea Scouts, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and Cowes sailability.
Michelin-starred chef Robert Thompson presented a hamper of the best of Isle of Wight produce and even handed her a special hamper for her corgis.
After the presentation, Robert said on Twitter: "Her Majesty was loving the IW Biltong for the corgis."
It was not the only gift presented to the Royal Couple.
Timothy Harris, of Isle of Wight Studio Glass presented the Queen with a specially created bowl to commemorate the visit.
