The Queen is to visit Ground Zero in New York for the first time tomorrow when she will lay wreath where 3,000 people died in the September 2001 terror attack.

She will also open a British Garden of Remembrance that has been dedicated to the 67 British victims of the tragedy.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will accompany the Queen to both ceremonies which will also be attended by families of British victims.

Other members of the Royal family, including Prince Charles and Prince Harry, have previously visited Ground Zero to pay their respects.

But, as the most senior royal, the Queen’s visit is highly anticipated by New Yorkers and the families of victims.

The Queen will not make a speech at Ground Zero but is expected to make reference to the tragedy when she later addresses the United General Assembly for the first time in more than 50 years.
