STORY: Britain's Queen Elizabeth II ended her three-day official visit to France on Saturday (June 7) by a visit to Paris' flower and bird market.

The Queen and and her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, walked the market's alleys with French President Francois Hollande and Paris' mayor Anne Hidalgo.

The Queen had already visited the market in 1948 and, to celebrate her second visit there, a plaque was unveiled renaming it 'Flower market Queen Elizabeth II'.

The royal couple then headed to Villacoublay airport, accompanied by Hollande.

The Queen's visit to France coincided with the commemoration for the 70th anniversary of D-Day, including a lunch and ceremonies hosted by French President Francois Hollande on Friday.
