Queen Elizabeth II ended her three-day visit to France with one final duty. With Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo and French President François Hollande by her side, she visited Paris's Marché des Fleurs, which was renamed in her honour.

Crowds of royal fans gathered at the markets in central Paris to get a glimpse of the Queen. She and her husband Prince Philip embarked on a rapid trip to France – their first in a decade – to attend the 70th anniversary commemorations of the D-Day landings in Normandy.
