1959 visit to the United States[edit]

On the contrary, the 1959 visit by Queen Elizabeth II was not a "state" visit per se to the United States. This was simply a formal meeting by Dwight Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth II at the opening of the Saint Lawrence Seaway. There was no State Arrival Ceremony in either Ottawa or Washington D.C. or state dinner to speak of. So in effect, it might be wise to downgrade 1959 state visit since there wasn't one to begin with. --173.87.177.216 (talk) 01:54, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

There was also a visit to Chicago (the portion of the Seaway she opened was wholly in Canada, so it wouldn't count as a visit to the US at all). Since there's no list of official visits made by Queen Elizabeth II that didn't rise to the level of state visit but on which she still carried out official engagements, it's included here.--Ibagli (Talk) 17:35, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Vimy[edit]

How is it known the Queen was there at the invitation of de Villepin, rather than the French being there at the invitation of the Canadians? I cannot find this in the source provided. Vimy is a Canadian monument, not a French one, and the Canadian prime minister was also present. DrKiernan (talk) 20:12, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
