Radiant: The Queen beamed as she opened the roof garden at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary today
Tour: The 91-year-old royal was shown around the plot which features flower beds and benches
The Robertson Family Roof Garden, which features flower beds and benches, gives patients and their families a space to relax during their hospital stays.
For the occasion the Queen wore a blue dress coat which featured a turquoise trim and was finished with a brooch on her shoulder.
She accessoried with a matching hat with a navy flower, black handbag and classic leather shoes.
During the visit she was given a pink posy which contrasted beautifully with the colour of her ensemble.
Good spirits: The Queen also met volunteers who helped make the roof garden a reality
The Queen was met by Councillor Barney Crockett, Lord Provost and Lord Lieutenant for Aberdeen, and representatives of NHS Grampian.
The Queen also met the garden’s architect and designers as well as staff, volunteers, former patients and fundraisers.
Later she is scheduled to visit a centre run by charity Sue Ryder, where she will meet trustees, staff and residents during a tour of the neurological care centre.
