London, (PRNewswire) In fact the Queen actually succeeded to the throne, while on a tour of Kenya, a trip which had set the standard for a woman who would spend a great deal of her time during the next 60 years travelling the world, meeting her subjects and representing the UK on both state and commonwealth visits. Strangely despite being so well travelled the Queen, has never had a holiday in Rhodes or like a huge number of her subjects enjoyed cheap holidays to Greece.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the strategic Mediterranean island of Malta for four days between November 23 and 26, 2005, during which time Her Majesty opened the biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting.It is a little known fact that the Queen, as Princess Elizabeth, lived in Malta from 1949 to 1951, when The Duke of Edinburgh was stationed on the island. This wonderful, sun-drenched little island is packed with history and personality; make sure you visit some of the many ancient building and architecture that make Malta so special.
The Queen has visited France eight times on official business, which tops it off as the most visited country by the Queen on state visits. The Queen paid a visit to one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Strasbourg in 1992. The entire town centre has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has a history unique to the area.
