Queen Elizabeth II plans to be at Woodbine for the July 4 Queen's Plate.

The Woodbine Entertainment Group announced Wednesday that the Queen and her husband, Prince Phillp, will be the guests of honor at the Queen's Plate's 151st running. The Queen will present the trophy to the winning owner.

The visit to Woodbine will be part of the royal couple's Canadian tour, which will include an appearance in Ottawa on Canada Day, July 1.

Queen Elizabeth and her husband previously attended the Queen's Plate in 1997, 1973, and 1959.
