Shoppers had to look twice when they saw a Royal visitor in the high street.
The Queen lookalike, Patricia Ford, took her corgis, Alex and Sally, for a walk and sampled the delights of Eton High Street on Monday morning.
Dressed in a pale yellow coat and matching hat, the 77-year-old lookalike, who has been impersonating The Queen for eight years, turned many heads when she visited shops and even stopped to enjoy a drink.
Her visit was part of the Eton Traders Association's bid to promote the Royal Borough Advantage Card scheme.
Chairwoman Amanda Bishop said: "We wanted to arrange a day where we could work with the Royal Borough advantage card campaign and make it fun.
"Patricia was really accommodating - working with each shop - and enjoyed it."
