England's Queen Elizabeth II returns to New York after a 30-year absence, and will address the United Nations for the first time in more than 50 years Tuesday, and has the scoop for you.

The queen’s only speech given to the UN General Assembly came in 1957, when she was just 31. She is also slated to leave a memorial wreath at Ground Zero, the site of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

On Monday, the queen, now 84, turned heads at a banquet in Toronto, Canada, as she wore a dress decorated with Swarovski crystals to form a Maple leaf. She last wore the elegant gown to a state dinner in Trinidad and Tobago in the fall of 2009.
