    Background: IN WEST GERMANY, THE TOUR OF QUEEN ELIZABETH CONTINUES TOMORROW NIGHT (SUNDAY) WHEN SHE TAKES A SPECIAL TRAIN TO STUTTGART. THIS WEEKEND, WITH PRINCE PHILIP, SHE IS STAYING WITH GERMAN RELATIVES AT A BAROQUE CASTLE IN SALEM, A VILLAGE NOTED FOR ITS FRUIT AND WINES, ABOUT TEN MILES (16KMS) FROM LAKE CONSTANCE, NEAR THE SWISS AND AUSTRIAN BORDERS.

    SALEM CASTLE, BUILT ON THE RUINS OF A CISTERCIAN MONASTERY, IS THE HOME OF PRINCE PHILIP'S SISTER, THE MARGRAVINE THEODORA OF BADEN. SHE WAS AT THE VILLAGE RAIL STATION TO GREET THEM, AMID CANNONS BOOMING, CROWDS OF SEVERAL THOUSANDS SIGHTSEERS AND VILLAGERS APPLAUDING AND THE CHOIR OF THE DUKE'S OLD SCHOOL SINGING A WELCOME. THE CASTLE HOUSES THE SCHOOL AND THE DUKE SPENT TWO YEARS THERE AS A BOY.

    WITH BANDS PLAYING AND A LOCAL SWORD-DANCING TROUPE STANDING AT THE SALUTE IN 18TH COSTUME, THE QUEEN AND DUKE TOOK THEIR SEATS IN AN OPEN HUNTING COACH FOR THE DRIVE TO THE CASTLE.

    ABOUT 250 POLICEMEN DRAFTED FROM MILES AROUND CONTROLLED THE CROWDS AS THE QUEEN AND DUKE DREW UP OUTSIDE THE CASTLE. THERE, THEY WERE GREETED BY THE DUKE'S TWO OTHER SISTERS AND SOME OF THE DOZEN RELATIVES FROM THE ONCE RULING HOUSES OF HANOVER, HOHENLOHE AND BADEN WHO JOINED THE WEEKEND PARTY.

    THE WEEKEND REST AT SALEM COMES AFTER THE FIRST FOUR PACKED DAYS OF HER TEN-DAY STATE VISIT - THE FIRST IN GERMANY BY A REIGNING BRITISH MONARCH IN OVER 50 YEARS. WHILE THE DUKE HAS STAYED AT SALEM MANY TIMES SINCE WORLD WAR TWO, PROTOCOL HAS PREVENTED A VISIT BY THE QUEEN UNTIL NOW. ONCE THE STATE VISIT IS OVER, SHE TOO WILL BE ABLE TO GO THERE.
