Queen Elizabeth II prepared for an action-packed final day of a state visit to Malta Saturday, including a picturesque boat trip around the Mediterranean island she once called home.The gharghar sapling -- a small cypress which is Malta's national tree -- will be the first of its kind in the palace's private gardens and will grow next to an olive tree planted 10 years ago by the queen during her last state visit in 2005 .The monarch lived in Malta between 1949 and 1951 as a princess with her new husband Prince Philip, who was stationed on the island as a Royal Navy officer.The center, where the national art collection is also preserved and restored, is housed in the former Bighi Hospital, a major navy infirmary that served a vast area from 1832 until 1970, giving Malta the nickname "The Nurse of the Mediterranean".
