A giant rugby ball literally loomed over a visit by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip near the River Thames today.

The inflatable, located at London’s Tower Bridge, was part of tourism promotions by the New Zealand High Commission and the organizers of the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Inside the ball, there were exhibits featuring scenes and artworks from the country. New Zealand’s national rugby team, The All Blacks, will play England at Twickenham on Sunday.
