UK monarch in historic UAE visit

Britain's Queen Elizabeth visits the Gulf state to promote trade, her first visit in 31 years.

    UK's Queen Elizabeth II has arrived in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

    It's her first visit in 31 years to a territory which was once a British protectorate.

    On that occasion she flew by Concorde to Kuwait before sailing around the Gulf on a royal yacht.

    But there's no such grandeur on this trip which is all about making money rather than flaunting it.

    Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan reports from Abu Dhabi.
