The Queen arrives in Bermuda tomorrow
with Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh carrying her bags. They land at the airport around 3pm and after being greeted by the Governor Sir Richard Gozney and Premier Ewart Brown, they plan to have a walkaround St George's and I hope to get over there to wave a union jack and take a few photos.
The Queen is here to commemorate the 400th Anniversary
of the settlement of Bermuda, and I was surprised to read that it is only her 4th ever visit to the island in 56 years on the throne. The last time was in 1994. On Thursday morning the Queen will leave with her rum cake and bottle of pink sand and travel to Trinidad and Tobago to open the 2009 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Trinidad on Friday.
