If you're in Australia, it's a little difficult to NOT know that Queen Elizabeth II is in town. This is her 16th official visit since her coronation tour in 1954. Her Majesty arrived in Canberra on Wednesday evening, to be greeted by all the usual official guests and two children from each school in the ACT. My friend Robyn's daughter was chosen as one of the two from our school, and Robyn has generously shared her photos of the occasion.
