NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Queen Elizabeth II never made an official visit to Connecticut but did arrive in New Haven on the royal yacht Britannia before jetting off to Virginia from Tweed-New Haven Airport. The visit was part of a series of stops when the Queen and Prince Philip came to the United States during the celebration of the Bicentennial in July 1976. The Queen had attended events in New York City including a dinner hosted on the ship on the evening of Friday, July 9. Following that, the entourage sailed from New York to New Haven.
