  • Description

    Britain's Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip have been entertained in a relaxed, colourful and traditional way at the beginning of their six-day state visit to Mexico.

    On Monday (24 February) evening the royal couple were the guests of Mexican President Luis Echeverria at a state banquet at the old National Palace. But even this formal occasion was lifted from the usual pomp and circumstance. For the President had given word that the guests should display the traditional regional costumes of Mexico. The Queen, however, remained tied to protocol and wore a classic evening gown and diamond tiara.

    Even the solemn wreath-laying ceremony earlier in the day was enlivened by the presence of a group of horsemen in traditional costume -- known as 'Charraria', or Mexican rodeo.
