The main reason for the couple’s visit was to unveil a seven-foot-tall statue of Queen Elizabeth II, designed and carved by cathedral stonemason Richard Bossons, which was originally commissioned to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee.

The statue stands 25 feet high on the west front of the Minster, hidden by a screen and today had a purple silk curtain over it.
