Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, will visit Virginia next May to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown Settlement.

The monarch announced her plans in a speech opening the British parliament Wednesday.

Buckingham Palace officials have confirmed the visit but say they won't know any details until next year.

It will be the royal couple's fourth trip to the US. They met with President Dwight Eisenhower in 1957 and President Gerald Ford in 1976, as well as the current president's father in 1991. They also made an informal visit to the West Coast in 1983.

In Moscow, President Bush said he hoped the visit would celebrate the "enduring bonds" between Britain and the US.
