UK monarch in historic UAE visit

UK's Queen Elizabeth II has arrived in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

It's her first visit in 31 years to a territory which was once a British protectorate.

On that occasion she flew by Concorde to Kuwait before sailing around the Gulf on a royal yacht.

But there's no such grandeur on this trip which is all about making money rather than flaunting it.

Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan reports from Abu Dhabi.
