Summary
Jack Clements reports on the visit of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip to the College of William and Mary during their tour of Tidewater Virginia, during the 350th anniversary celebration of the founding of Jamestown. From the balcony of the campus' Christopher Wren Building, the Queen and Prince appear and are welcomed by James M. Robertson, Rector of the Board of Visitors of the College of William and Mary. He comments on the historic relationship between the British Royal Crown and education in Virginia, beginning with the chartering of the college in 1693, and notes this is the first visit to the college by a reigning monarch of Great Britain. The Queen presents a gift of a copy of the Statute of the Order of the Garter, presented to Prince William, Duke of Gloucester, nephew of King William, three years after the founding of the College. Prince Philip is greeted by Alvin Duke Chandler, President of the College of William and Mary, and the two exchange gifts between the College and the University of Edinburgh, the alma mater of the College's first president, the Reverend James Blair
