'I want to hold your hand . . .'
The British monarch chatted with Ono, widow of John Lennon, on a visit to the Museum of Liverpool in the city where the Fab Four formed.
Ono said she was impressed by the queen's burgundy coat, dress and matching hat, saying it "made her look so young, so elegant. She is always elegant. It's always nice to meet her."
In honour of the queen's trip to Liverpool yesterday, the band of the Coldstream Guards played a medley of Beatles songs during the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London.
