Princess Elizabeth, who left England last week with the Duke of Edinburgh on their Commonwealth Tour, returned to London Airport today from Kenya as Queen Elizabeth the Second. The royal couple had cut short their Commonwealth tour because of the King's death. Government and Opposition ministers, looking very sad as they mourned the passing of King George VI, were at the airport to officially welcome the new Queen.
