The last time the queen helped Virginia mark the anniversary of its colonial founding, it was an all-white affair in a still-segregated state. Thursday's visit was starkly different.I loved the headline from the Sydney Morning Herald though: Queen celebrates white settlement in US.

Her Majesty in Virginia
... I quite forget that the sovereign of the nation I am visiting is currently in Virginia. How American society has changed since she last was in Jamestown!
