The Travel History Of The Queen Of England

May 5, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

The current Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, is probably the most well-travelled monarchy in history writes Cordelia Hebblethwaite. But what stands out is the countries that she hasn’t visited:

  • The Queen’s husband is from Greece but she has never visited the country as a queen due to Greece’s complicated history with her husband’s family.
  • The Queen has not visited Israel due to political tensions involved with the legitimacy of Jerusalem as capital of Israel.
  • She has visited only two countries in Latin America and while that will probably soon expand she is unlikely to visit Argentina because of the tensions created by the Falklands war.
