Queen Plans UK Tour To Mark Diamond Jubilee

Quote
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will mark next year's Diamond Jubilee with a five-month 'four corners' tour of the UK.
The royal couple will "travel as widely as possible" across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to mark 60 years of the Queen's reign, Buckingham Palace announced today.
The 85-year-old monarch and the Duke, 90, will begin in North London on March 29.
The tour will take in the Diamond Jubilee weekend on June 2 and 3, when the Queen will attend the Epsom Derby and the Thames Diamond Jubilee River Pageant .
Meanwhile, the rest of the royal family will carry out celebratory overseas trips, visiting 15 countries in all.
