Since succeeding as Queen in 1952, Queen Elizabeth II has visited every Commonwealth country at least once. Her first and longest tour was between November 1953 and May 1954, when she embarked on the Word Commonwealth Tour, a trip that covered over 40,000 miles, one that took her to different Commonwealth states, including West Indies, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Together with Prince Philip, her first destination was Bermuda, where she spent two days and was welcomed by Governor Wood.
