Queen Elizabeth II To Go Ahead With Woolwich Visit


Fresh on the heels of Wednesday’s horrific attack in London, it has been announced that Queen Elizabeth II will continue with her visit to the King’s Troop Royal Artillery in Woolwich on May 31.  The Queen is said to have been greatly “concerned” when informed of yesterday’s events yet plans to go ahead with her visit, which has been scheduled for months.

King’s Troop Royal Artillery was created in 1947 by King George VI, the Queen’s father, after deciding that a troop of horse artillery should be kept to take part in the great ceremonies of state.  The King’s Troop was stationed for 65 years at St. John’s Wood Barracks before relocating to Woolwich in February 2012.

On May 22, two suspects murdered a soldier on his way back to the barracks, within the vicinity of Mulgrave Primary School.  The victim has been identified as husband and father, Drummer Lee Rigby of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.  Prime Minister David Cameron gave his condolences outside 10 Downing Street and said, “This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terror.”  Today, London mayor Boris Johnson visited the barracks and assured the public that those responsible will be brought “speedily to justice.”
