Royals to Visit UBC

Campus organizers are preparing for a royal visit by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on the afternoon of Oct. 7.

Details of the visit were unconfirmed at press time but plans are underway for ceremonies on campus.

"We're very excited and honored that the royal couple will be returning to UBC," said Eilis Courtney, UBC's manager of Ceremonies and Events.

It is the fourth time that Elizabeth and Philip will have visited the campus. The couple's first visit was in 1951 when Elizabeth was a princess.

The couple took in a Thunderbird football game. There were two other visits, one in 1959 and another in 1983.

The visit is part of the Royal Jubilee celebrations commemorating 50 years of the Queen's reign.
