(LONDON) Queen Elizabeth II will pay tribute to the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings when she visits the U.S. state next week, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday.

Though it was not immediately clear what sort of ceremony will be held, a trip to the campus in Blacksburg, Va., was ruled out, a palace spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity in line with royal rules. A student at the university killed 32 people and himself at the campus on April 16.

"As the queen is visiting so shortly after the tragedy, it is important that it be recognized," the spokeswoman said. "It's a significant and terrible tragedy."

The queen is traveling to the United States to mark the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in America.

Her journey to the United States will be her fifth in 50 years but it will be first in which the carbon dioxide released by the trip will be offset by a donation to an environmental organization, the palace said.
