Chicago "Loopy" Over Elizabeth. Chicago's Ovation For Queen Elizabeth II. Chicago stages the greatest, most enthusiastic reception in the annals of the windy city to greet Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, with a tumultuous harbor welcome and cheering throngs estimated at over a million on the shore. Some planes fly overhead. Fireboats (?) spray water in the air on Lake Michigan. City skyline in several shots. Queen and Prince are welcomed ashore. Funny -- a few photographers/press stand on Chicago Fire Department ladder for a good view. Queen is led past huge crowds to a car. Group of newsreel cameramen.
