Photos: A look back at Queen Elizabeth II's visit to California in 1983

Los Angeles Times

Queen Elizabeth the II, who turns 90 today, visited the West Coast of the United States for the first time in February and March of 1983. Her trip started in San Diego and moved north from there: to Los Angeles for a meeting with then-Mayor Tom Bradley, to Santa Barbara to meet then-President Reagan, and on to San Francisco, Sacramento, Yosemite and finally Seattle. She then went on to Victoria, British Columbia. The queen's visit to Yosemite was marred by the deaths of three U.S. Secret Service agents in a head-on collision with a Mariposa County Sheriff's Department car. The agents, part of a detail protecting the queen, were driving around a curve on Highway 132 when they crashed, The Times reported then.
