Queen to make farewell visit to QE2

The Queen is set to make a farewell visit to the Queen Elizabeth 2 on Monday June 2.

Cunard president and managin director Carol Marlow said: “We are delighted and honoured that The Queen has chosen to visit QE2 to wish her farewell. Her majesty has taken a close interest in the ship over the last 40 years, and I am certain this will be a memorable occasion for all involved.”
