  7. Continuing our look back at The Queen's reign, we're looking at the 1980s, a decade which saw political and religious barriers being broken down. History was made in 1982 when Pope John Paul II visited Britain, the first pope to do so for 450 years. The Queen, Head of the Church of England, received him at Buckingham Palace. In 1983, when this image was taken, The Queen awarded Mother Theresa with the Order of Merit in New Delhi. Ties with the Commonwealth were reinforced by visits to Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the Caribbean. They allowed The Queen to participate in key events in the countries' political independence. Australia's bicentenary year in 1988 was celebrated with visits by The Queen and Prince Philip as well as The Prince and Princess of Wales. During the visit, The Queen opened the new Parliament House in Canberra. Image copyright Press Association #TheQueen #MotherTeresa
