Queen Elizabeth II was greeted by thousands of people in Melbourne on Wednesday, during her four-hour visit to the world’s most liveable city.

Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillp, she was in town to open the new Royal Children’s Hospital, after opening the first one in 1963.

After viewing an exhibition of indigenous art at the Ian Potter Gallery, she caught a Z3-Class tram to a reception and lunch with local politicians at Government House.

Here’s some of the responses from those who turned out to see the Queen in Federation Square:
