Dame Vivienne Westwood: Queen is 'social cement'

The Queen is meeting hundreds of leading cultural figures at one of the most glittering gatherings of actors, writers and artists the UK has seen.

Sir Derek Jacobi, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Paul McCartney and David Hockney are among the 850 luminaries due at the reception to mark the Diamond Jubilee.

Arriving for the occasion, Dame Vivienne Westwood admitted she has not always been a royalist, but said she had a new-found admiration for the monarchy.
