The Baton then made it's way down the Mall and has since travelled to Cyprus and Malta. Over the next 294 days, our Baton will make its way around all 72 territories of the Commonwealth, before returning to Her Majesty in Birmingham on 28th July. We are proud to say the least!
Here are some of our favourite pictures from the ceremony and start of the Queen's Commonwealth Baton Relay. Look our for Tom's handshake with HRH herself! To watch the BBC 1 coverage of the events, along with the Baton's appearance with multi-Paralympic Gold medallist, Kadeena Cox, on the One Show, head to the BBC iPlayer!
