The Queen is in Glasgow as part of her week-long trip to Scotland to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.
Her Majesty started the day with a thanksgiving service at Glasgow Cathedral, where she was accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, before paying a visit to George Square in the city centre.
The Royal couple are then visiting St Margaret's Hospice, in nearby Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire, and afterwards attend a lunch in the grounds of Our Holy Redeemer Primary School in the town.
The hospice has provided care to patients with terminals illnesses and older people with complex medical and nursing needs for almost 60 years. It offers a range of facilities to the local and wider community including a day care centre, out patient facilities, home care and counselling services.
They will then reach Greenock for the official opening of Inverclyde Council's new £2m customer service centre at Greenock Municipal Buildings.
Wednesday's events mark the third day of the Queen's visit to Scotland, which began with an engagement at Edinburgh's newly-refurbished Scottish National Portrait Gallery on Monday.
The Queen`s annual garden party in the grounds of Holyrood Palace took place on Tuesday, with 8000 guests attending from across Scotland.
Earlier in the day The Queen presided over an investiture ceremony which saw around 70 people receive honours.
Other events include a service at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh on Thursday at which the Earl of Strathearn will be installed as a Knight of the Thistle.
On Friday, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visit Perth, which was awarded city status to mark the Jubilee.
Streets around George Square have been closed for Her Majesty's visit and drivers have been advised to avoid the routes immediately surrounding the area.
