Queen Might Meet Injured Students
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.
