Royal welcome for President of South Korea

Royal welcome for President of South Korea
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh formally welcome The President of the Republic of South Korea to the UK on a state visit, at Horse Guards Parade.

The first female president of South Korea was given a ceremonial welcome as she began a state visit to the UK yesterday.
Park Geun-hye was greeted with warm smiles by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh as she arrived at Horse Guards Parade, just as sunshine broke through clouds after a rainy start to the day.
President Park, who is staying at Buckingham Palace during her three-day visit, was introduced to dignitaries on the royal podium by the Queen - who was in a rose-coloured silk and wool dress and coat by Karl Ludwig, with a matching Angela Kelly hat.
The president, who wore grey trousers and a dark purple coat, shook hands with Prime Minister David Cameron, Foreign Secretary William Hague and Home Secretary Theresa May - who had donned a brightly-coloured coat with a geometric pattern for the occasion.
A 41-gun salute was fired in nearby Green Park by The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, and also at the Tower of London by The Honourable Artillery Company, to mark the arrival of the president - who was sworn in on February 25 this year.
