WEDNESDAY, NOV. 17: Premier Paula Cox was given an audience with the Queen at Windsor Castle yesterday.

Ms Cox, along with other heads of government from the Overseas Territories, met Her Majesty in The Green Room at Windsor Castle.

Ms Cox discussed Her Majesty’s trip to Bermuda last year.

According to a press statement, Her Majesty asked about last week’s visit of HRH the Duchess of Gloucester and the Presentation of Colours to the Bermuda Regiment.

Ms Cox assured Her Majesty the Duchess was warmly received by Bermuda.

On meeting Her Majesty, Ms Cox said: “It is always a distinct honour to meet Heads of State and our unique relationship with the United Kingdom makes this introduction extra special. 

“I found Her Majesty warm and relaxed and the dress she chose to wear for the meeting, aquamarine and green in colour, reminded one of Bermuda’s blue seas. 

“I could not help but compliment her on her choice of colours and this brought a ready smile to her face.  It indeed was a pleasant exchange and a fine afternoon.”

Following the visit at Windsor Castle, Premier Cox attended a reception hosted by Cayman Islands Premier Mckeeva Bush.
