Britain's Queen Elizabeth II had the chance to live every child's dream on Friday (April 5), when she toured a chocolate factory. The Queen and Prince Philip watched how Mars bars are made at the Mars facility in Slough, close to London. The royal couple were also shown a giant box of Malteser chocolate balls, deemed not good enough for sale and earmarked to be melted down. The Queen, dressed in a bright pink coat and matching hat, looked intrigued as she watched workers moulding chocolate into the different shapes, but did not have a taste of any of the sweet treats. Mars Chocolate UK has been manufacturing in Slough since 1932. (Video Source: REUTERS)
