The Queen Mother, well wrapped up against the cold, earned a warm welcome from crowds as

The Queen Mother, well wrapped up against the cold, earned a warm welcome from crowds as she arrived to open a Warwickshire museum. Sprightly as ever, the 88-year-old royal favourite returned the waves of scores of people who lined the streets of Warwick. Minutes earlier she had landed by helicopter at Sherbourne Park, home of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Charles Smith-Ryland. The Queen Mother, dressed in a long blue coat with matching hat and shoes, appeared not to notice the chilling wind - and the spectators certainly didn't. Sylvia Aston and her friend Nora Jones, from Leamington, said the long wait had been worthwhile. Mrs Aston said: "We have been looking forward to the visit ever since we first heard about it. She gave us a wave, she looked lovely." The Queen Mother was in Warwick to re-open the Queen's Own Hussars Regiment Museum, which has just undergone a £125,000 facelift, and to visit the Lord Leycester Hospital where an exhibition commemorated the 400th anniversary of the death of its founder Robert Dudley, Earl of Leycester. She was also making an official visit to the nearby George Marshall Centre, headquarters of the Warwickshire Association for the Blind.
