Queen Elizabeth II, flanked by Prime Minister David Cameron, left, and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, right, are joined by members of the Cabinet for a group portrait at No 10 Downing Street, the prime minister's residence. The queen sat in on a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, the first such visit by a sitting British monarch in more than a century, to mark her diamond jubilee. Historically, monarchs regularly led Cabinet meetings, but the last one to exercise their right to attend was Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth's great-great grandmother, who died in 1901. Elizabeth, 86, received a gift from the Cabinet to celebrate her 60 years on the throne.
