Queen Elizabeth was all smiles as she spent the day in Chichester, in the southern English county of West Sussex.

Dressed in her signature style of coat-dress and a matching hat, the 91-year old royal looked as elegant as always in pale pink pastel hues, accentuated with pearls, a diamond brooch, black gloves and a black handbag.

Her first visit was to a canine charity that assists those with disabilities to enjoy a greater independence through the provision of specially trained dogs.

The dogs are trained to do everyday tasks such as, opening doors, picking up dropped items and even unloading the washing machine, noted The Royal Family Instagram post.

The Queen made new furry friends, even receiving a posy from Yarna, an enthusiastic black Labrador.
