For the first time in her life, 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth II attended London Fashion Week. The monarch made a surprise when she appeared at British designer Richard Quinn's show on Tuesday. After watching the provocative show in the front row with Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour and Chief Executive of the British Fashion Council Caroline Rush, the Queen presented the inaugural QueenElizabeth II Award for British Design to Quinn.

The three-year-old is thought to have been being looked after by a nanny when the attack happened. Here's all you need to know. Who was the toddler? The three-year-old boy is thought to be the son of a ranger at Queen Elizabeth National Park. This means the toddler would have lived on the ground with his mum in the unfenced staff quarters. The toddler is thought to have followed a maid out of the main house and towards a kitchen when the leopard pounced.
