It's not quite the sort of typically English headscarf we're used to seeing her in.

But then, the Queen wasn't anywhere typically English.

She wore the flowing head covering as a mark of respect as she visited a 15th century mosque on her state visit to Turkey.

The exotic scarf replaced the wide-brimmed hat she had been wearing to protect her from the hot sun, while her shoes were removed in favour of slipper-type socks.

She then made her way into the Green Mosque – so called because of the colour of its tiles – in the northwestern city of Bursa.
