    Background: AFTER TWO UNSCHEDULED DELAYS ON THEIR FLIGHT, THE QUEEN AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH ARRIVED IN FIJI ON SATURDAY AT THE START OF THEIR ROYAL TOUR OF THE ISLANDS, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND.

    WAITING AT LAUTOKA, THE ISLAND'S SECOND LARGEST PORT, WAS THE ROYAL YACHT, "BRITANNIA". IT HAD ARRIVED AT THE ISLANDS ON JANUARY 25. AFTER THE BOEING AIRLINER LANDED, THE QUEEN WAS TO TRAVEL BY CAR TO BOARD THE YACHT BEFORE SAILING INTO SUVA FOR THE OFFICIAL WELCOME.

    FOR WEEKS, THE ISLANDERS HAVE BEEN PREPARING DECORATIONS -- EVERYWHERE THERE ARE FLAGS, AND ROYAL EMBLEMS, MANY MADE IN BAMBOO AND OTHER NATIVE MATERIALS. ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR ARCHES IS A LARGE THATCHED "ROOF" BUILT OVER PART OF THE ROUTE THE QUEEN'S CAR WILL TRAVEL ON HER TOUR THROUGH THE STREETS OF THE CAPITAL.
