Victoria: Buzz rises about a Queen Elizabeth visit next year

Buckingham Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will visit British Columbia next year, and speculation immediately rose in the province’s capital that Victoria will be on their list.

The royals will be in the province Oct. 4-8, 2002, as part of their Golden Jubilee tour across Canada, Buckingham Palace announced Wednesday. Specific destinations within British Columbia will be published early next year.

The Golden Jubilee celebrates the 50th anniversary of the queen’s accession to the throne.

Elizabeth last visited Victoria in 1994 for the Commonwealth Games.
