Queen Might Meet In­jured Stu­dents

The Washington Post Sunday - - Weather -

State and Bri­tish of­fi­cials are try­ing to ar­range a meet­ing be­tween Queen El­iz­a­beth II and some of the stu­dents in­jured dur­ing the Vir­ginia Tech mas­sacre when she ar­rives in the United States later this week, ac­cord­ing to sources in­volved with plan­ning for the queen’s visit.

The meet­ing would be held when the queen ar­rives in Rich­mond on Thurs­day, likely out of pub­lic view.

“We con­tinue to dis­cuss the most ap­pro­pri­ate time and man­ner to ac­knowl­edge this tragedy,” said Steven Atkins, spokesman for the Bri­tish Em­bassy.

The Bri­tish me­dia have cov­ered the April 16 shoot­ings ex­ten­sively.
