In which my great-grandmother wishes the Queen would leave

My great-grandmother mailed this postcard to my great-grandfather in, if I'm reading the postmark correctly, May 1964. It went from the United Kingdom to their house in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

The cursive note states:
Had my ship room confirmed now in Parliament bldg. Service in Westminster so have to wait for service to be over. Queen is at "Windsor" so hope she leaves soon. Thrilled to be here! Love, Greta
Save this card!
Well, we can definitely, 54 years later, consider the card "saved."

Thanks to the power of Wikipedia, here are some other things that were taking place in England in May 1964:
