Crowds from near and far started arriving at 11 Thursday morning all in hopes of getting a glimpse of the Queen.

"It's more exciting to see my daughter. Most of my time in England seeing her" said Darren Trembath.

"I'm going to do a curtsy and I wanted to see her because that's where my nana lives" said Holly Trembath.

British born U.S. citizens say it was their duty to come today.

"I just went to England on vacation and didn't see her. I heard she was here, I thought getting a glimpse of her would be good" said Jayne Ardy.

Many donning hats in her honor.

"Very exciting, very good to have people come and enjoy this event" said Glenda Andes from Churchill.

"I hope the queen gives a nod or raises an eyebrow" said Ardy.

And 200 American Indians paid tribute by dancing and drumming for her Majesty.

"Once in a lifetime opportunity, really proud of being an American Indian" said Wilma Hicks of the Mattaponi Tribe.

"Extremely excited. It's giving us the opportunity to see what she's about" said Lauren Hicks of the Upper Mattaponi Tribe.
