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!
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.
