As temperatures in New York City soar above 100 degrees Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II is scheduled to visit the Big Apple, where she will deliver a speech to the United Nations General Assembly and visit Ground Zero.
According to the Associated Press, "the 84-year-old monarch was 31 years old when she last addressed the U.N. in 1957. That was four years after she was crowned queen. This time, she's expected to appeal for world unity and peace."
During the brief five-hour visit, the queen also will make her first trip to the site of the September 11 attacks, and open a memorial for British 9/11 victims.
The queen will address the U.N. at 3 p.m. Watch the speech here on Channel 3.
