Her Majesty The Queen opened the new Studio Four-designed Cowes RNLI lifeboat station this week in glorious sunshine as part of her Jubilee tour of the UK.  Accompanied by HRH Prince Philip, The Queen arrived in Cowes by launch before meeting the local volunteer crew and officially opening the station.  A commemorative plaque was unveiled and the lifeboat launched down the new slipway as part of the ceremony.
