Royal Holiday at Windsor, 1961

The Queen drives Princess Sophia of Greece and Denmark (now Queen Sofia of Spain) and Princess Anne in her station wagon through Windsor Great Park on this day in 1961, getting a well-deserved break at Windsor Castle following an extensive 2-month Tour of India and Pakistan and State Visits to Nepal and Iran, as well as the Commonwealth Prime Ministers’ Banquet. Almost exactly 35 years later, the Queen hosted the then Queen Sofia of Spain at Windsor Castle during the Spanish State Visit to Britain
