There were warm smiles all around yesterday as Barbados marked the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II with a joint sitting of the House of Assembly and the Senate.

The Queen was represented by her youngest son Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and his wife Sophie.

Here, the prince (front, right), deputy President of the Senate Kerryann Ifill  (centre), Clerk of Parliament Pedro Eastmond (left), Sophie, Countess of Wessex (behind Eastmond), and Speaker of the House of Assembly Michael Carrington (behind Prince Edward) make their way into the Upper Chamber.
