Queen Elizabeth makes a stop in the U.S.A.

Queen Elizabeth II of England will visit the U.S. on Tuesday afternoon, but don't look for her motorcade on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Her Majesty will make a six-hour stopover in New York City after a nine day tour through Canada.

On the agenda: A speech before the United Nations General Assembly early in the afternoon, followed by a meeting with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R), New York Gov. David Patterson (D), and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R).

In the early evening, Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinborough, will pay their respects at two 9/11 memorials. 

Earlier this week, Her Majesty was the guest of honor at a state dinner hosted by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, where she delivered formal remarks (pictured here).

This will mark the third time Queen Elizabeth, 84, has visited the Big Apple; she came once when she was in her twenties and again in 1976 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of America's independence from Britain.
