The Queen came to King Edward Court shopping centre in Windsor today when she unveiled the town's £50,000 jubilee tribute.
The 4.65m high stainless steel structure consisting of 60 spheres sloping dramatically into the air drew gasps, as the Queen pulled aside the lavish covering to reveal the gleaming construction underneath.
Crowds had started gathering well before the Queen appeared wearing a mauve coat and hat.
They were entertained by the Windsor Boys and Girls' School combined band.

More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
