The Queen has ended a three day trip to Northern Ireland by laying a wreath to commemorate Irish service personnel who died in the First World War.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh were guests of honour at the commemorative event in Coleraine, Co Londonderry to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the conflict and all those who lost their lives in the subsequent four years.

The Royal couple flew to Coleraine from her official residence at Hillsborough Castle where earlier they chatted to experts from the Antiques Roadshow who assessed items from the castle’s collections.
