Britain’s queen has unveiled a bronze statue of her mother.

It sits in the English town of Poundbury, in the county of Dorset, which Prince Charles has helped to develop.

He and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, hosted Queen Elizabeth and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the ceremony in the main square of the town.

The statue, sculpted by Philip Jackson, depicts the late Queen Mother, aged 51. She died in 2002, aged 101.

Poundbury is built on land owned by Prince Charles and was developed based on his principles of town planning.

Construction began in October 1993 and is scheduled to be completed by 2025, when the town will be home to an estimated 4,500 people.
