    Background: Britain's Queen Elizabeth left France on Friday (May 19) after a five-day state visit. She boarded the Royal yacht Britannia at the northern French port of Rouen for the journey home after what was her second official visit to the country--the first time any British monarch has made a return journey to France on a state visit.

    The tour was marked by a warm reception from the French people; by a visit to her estranged uncle, the Duke of Windsor, once King Edward VIII; and by a bo??? scare as she toured Rouen before her departure. The scare turned out to be a hoax, but even as she and Prince Philip boarded the Britannia with French Premier Jacques Chaban-Delmas and his wife for a final tea ceremony, a young man climbed on board the yacht up a mooring rope. He was led away by French police.

    SYNOPSIS: Britain's Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, left France aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia on Friday after a five-day state visit. The Royal Party sailed from Rou???n, in Northern France, after what was the Queen's second state visit--the first time a British monarch has made the return journey. It was ???rked by a warm re???n from the French people.

    The Royal family went on board with the French Prime Minister and his wife, Monsi???ur and Madame Chaban-D???l???, when they entertained to ???. Earlier, they had toured the streets of Rou???n--where five hundred years ago the English had French martyr J???n of Arc burned at the ???k???.

    An unid???ntifi???d youth also boa??? the Brit???--by climbing a mo???g rope. But it seemed his int???tions were friendly. He waved a little British flag ??? French police, ???barrassed at the breach of security, led him away. Before that, there'd been a bomb scare as the Royal Party toured the town--but it ???d out to be a ???x.

    During the tour the Queen vi???d her estranged uncle, the Duke of Windsor, at his Paris home. The Duke was once King Edward the Eighth, but abdicated to ???rry a divorc???.
