Queen Elizabeth has declined to turn Buckingham Palace green for St Patrick's Day.
The offer came from Tourism Ireland as part of their global greening initiative, when famous global attractions will go green to mark March 17.
A response from Buckingham Palace said the decision was not to take anything away from the very special affection The Queen has for the country and the people of Ireland, especially following her historic State Visit in 2011.
