  • Description

    QUEEN ELIZABETH OF GREAT BRITAIN AND THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH, ARRIVED IN MALTA TODAY AT THE BEGINNING OF A THREE-DAY STATE VISIT. THEY WERE MET AT THE AIRPORT BY THE ISLAND'S GOVERNOR-GENERAL, SIR MAURICE DORMAN, AND BY PRIME MINISTER BORG OLIVIER.

    THE QUEEN WAS BEING WELCOMED FOR THE FIRST TIME AS SOVEREIGN OF MALTA, WHICH BECAME INDEPENDENT THREE YEARS AGO AFTER 2,300 YEARS OF FOREIGN RULE -- THE LAST 160 OF THEM BRITISH.

    AFTER THE WELCOMING CEREMONIES, THE ROYAL COUPLE DROVE THROUGH FLAG-DECKED, CROWDED STREETS FOR A WELCOMING CEREMONY IN VALETTA, THE SEAT OF THE MALTESE PARLIAMENT.

    MANY OF THE MALTESE WHO TURNED OUT TO WELCOME THE BRITISH SOVEREIGN FACE UNEMPLOYMENT AS A RESULT OF BRITAIN'S RUN-DOWN OF HER DEFENCE DISPOSITIONS ON THE ISLAND.
