    IN DUESSELDORF MORE THAN HALF A MILLION PEOPLE PACKED THE STREETS TO GIVE THE QUEEN ANOTHER GREAT WELCOME. THE CHEERING OF THE CROWDS OUTSIDE THE 16TH CENTURY TOWN HALL WAS SO LOUD THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER VISIT, NOW ENTERING ITS SECOND WEEK, THE QUEEN MADE AN UNSCHEDULED APPEARANCE ON THE BALCONY TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE CROWD'S GREETING.

    FROM THERE, THE ROYAL PARTY TOOK A SECOND TRIP ON THE RHINE TO TRAVEL TO DUISBURG, AN ENGINEERING CENTRE. THE RIVER STEAMER WAS ESCORTED BY A FIRE BOAT WITH JETS PLAYING, TWO POLICE LAUNCHES, AND PLEASURE BOATS.

    A VISIT TO MANNESMANN STEEL PLANT WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE ITINERARY AT DUISBURG. THE QUEEN WORE A PROTECTIVE HELMET OVER A HEADSCARF DURING HER FIVE-MILE TOUR THROUGH THE STEELWORKS. SHE SAW SCRAP IRON BEING FED INTO THE OPEN-HEARTH FURNACES, AND THE SPECTACULAR SIGHT OF MOLTEN METAL POURING FROM FURNACES BEING TAPPED.
