Queen Elizabeth II attends a reception recognising the work of the Duke of Edinburgh on the second day of a two day tour of Slovenia on October 22, 2008 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are on the state visit at the invitation of the country's president Danilo Turk. It is the monarch's first trip to the former Communist country.The highlight of the trip is likely to be a visit to Lipica, home to the world's most famous stud farm where they breed legendary dancing horses, renowned for their distinctive white coats and graceful perfomances. The Queen, a keen horsewoman, was presented with her very own Lippizzaner stallion. (Photo by Chris Jackson/Getty Images) * Local Caption * Queen Elizabeth II
