Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip

Rolf and Marg Hougen meet Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip during their visit to the Yukon. FH Collins looks on. Prince Phillip went to Dawson City alone as the Queen was not well. A reporter wrote a story that said:

"The Queen was served some bad moose meat last night and became ill."

In fact she was pregnant... morning sickness.
