The 84-year-old monarch, accompanied by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, will lay a wreath at the former site of the World Trade Center to pay tribute to victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks. She will also open the British Garden of Remembrance in nearby Hanover Square to honor the 67 British citizens killed on 9/11.

Royal aides say she was personally concerned about the tragedy, but had not had an opportunity to go to New York herself.

In 2002, on the first anniversary of the attacks, she sought to console the grieving British community living there by sending them a personal message, expressing her sympathy and thanking New Yorkers for their support for grieving Britons.

Other royal family members have paid tribute in the following years — the queen's son, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla visited the site in 2005, while Prince Harry, Charles' son and the third in line to the throne, was there last year.

Her Majesty who arrives in New York City today will also address the United Nations.

Does anyone know what time Her Majesty's speech is set to be broadcast? As I would prefer to watch it live. (Unless I've already missed it...)

The Queen departed for London soon after her address to the UN ending her visit to North America most of which was spent in Canada.
