The Queen is to address the UN General Assembly

The Queen is to address the United Nations General Assembly in New York this summer for the first time in more than 50 years, Buckingham Palace says. She will make her speech on 6 July, following a royal tour of Canada accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh. The Queen will begin her visit to Canada on 28 June and she will return to London immediately after her address to the UN.

The last time the monarch addressed the UN General Assembly was in 1957.
