On October 19, 1957, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip visited Byrd Stadium to watch the UMD v. UNC football game. The Terps won 21-7!
Do you know what Queen Elizabeth did after the game? She went to the Queenstown Giant Food in West Hyattsville!! How amazing would it be to go grocery shopping and run into the Queen! Check out the WETA blog to learn more.
