Jessica Alba Treats Daughter to Sightseeing at Buckingham Palace

On Wednesday evening she was attending a glamorous bash to celebrate the 75th anniversary of fashion label Salvatore Ferragamo.

But the following morning Jessica Alba was well and truly back on mummy duty as she treated her four-year-old daughter, Honor, to a spot of sightseeing in London.

The mother-daughter duo looked as though they were having a whale of a time as they paid a visit to see the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

And although they may be Hollywood royalty, the pair had to make do with posing for a photograph outside the palace gates with the rest of the tourists.

Both Jessica and Honor looked thrilled to be soaking up the sights and sounds of one of London's most-famous landmarks, with the pair beaming from ear to ear as they posed alongside a friend for a snap.

The 31-year-old actress made sure to capture the memories of the day on her mobile phone, and was seen snapping away as the group made their way away from the Palace and down the Mall.

Jessica, who also has a one-year-old daughter, Haven, with husband Cash Warren, has previously spoken about how lucky she feels to be able to travel the world with her two young daughters.

The California native told The View: Having them travel with me and exposing them to the cultures is amazing. I feel so blessed that I can do that.

'And I want my four-year-old to know please, thank you, and hello in every language, so I drill it into her head everywhere we go. She learns it and she's really polite about it.'
