Queen Elizabeth In Jamestown

JAMESTOWN, Va. (AP) -- Britain's Queen Elizabeth is in America.

She and Prince Philip arrived yesterday, stopping first at Virginia's capital city, Richmond, where the queen addressed the state general assembly. She also met briefly with students and faculty from Virginia Tech, including three of the survivors of last month's shooting rampage there.

This morning, she and Philip visit Jamestown, celebrating the 400Th anniversary of the first permanent English settlement in what was to become the United States of America. Vice President Cheney will accompany the royals on their trip through Jamestown's living history.

The queen also is scheduled to visit the nearby College of William and Mary in Williamsburg before leaving for Louisville, Kentucky, and tomorrow's Kentucky Derby.

Then, it's on to Washington for a state dinner hosted by President Bush before departing for Britain Tuesday.
