Queen Elizabeth's U.S. Visits
The Inaugural Visit, 1957
On her first trip to the States during her reign, Queen Elizabeth II took part in a thoroughly American activity: watching college football. While attending this Maryland-North Carolina game, Her Majesty famously asked Maryland's governor: "Where do you get all those enormous players?" His response? "Your majesty, that's a very embarrassing question." The queen is pictured here, sitting in the first row of the stands.
