ORNATE HYDE PARK GATES CHOMP HUGE PINK DRAPES

SHARE ORNATE HYDE PARK GATES CHOMP HUGE PINK DRAPES

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II unveiled ornate new steel gates Tuesday at the entrance to Hyde Park. There was only one snag: huge pink drapes that covered the gates caught on the elaborate metalwork and ripped as they were lifted by a crane in a shower of 93,000 rose petals. The 120-foot-wide gates were built with public donations to honor the monarch's mother, Queen Mother Elizabeth.
