Queen Elizabeth II - First Monarch to Visit China - 30th Anniversary Thimble

£8.95
Queen Elizabeth II became the first British Sovereign to enter China. Prince Philip, who had arrived half an hour earlier, stood with Chinese officials as Elizabeth stepped onto the red carpet to begin her six-day visit. The visit came almost two years after the two countries agreed on the future of the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong and during a time of increasing British-Chinese trade. During her stay in China, HM the Queen, met with the Chinese leader, the President, the party General Secretary and the Prime Minister, but the bulk of her visit was devoted to touring historical monuments.
