Minikwiz Mistake?

Pardon for asking, but it states 'Elizabeth deux vient en France' in one of the Minikwizes for this lesson. I'm assuming she WENT to France, not came from [ in ? ] France. It makes no sense to me, but, to be honest, I had to do the country preposition lessons so many times it wasn't even funny. Perhaps I am being stupid, or perhaps I am just railing against my own inadequacies, but, To you I pose this question good sir or madame.

The translation is given in the answer to the question: "Elizabeth the second comes to France."

This makes perfect sense if you live in France and are describing a state visit currently taking place. I think you are looking at it from the point of view of a British person who would say "went". The following lesson explains that "en" can be used to mean "to".
