Nostalgia: Royal visitors bring out the crowds on visits to county events
- Credit: Archant
Royal visitors always bring great excitement – and huge crowds to see them.
Over the decades, Suffolk has hosted most members of the royal family, attending events and functions – from major public occasions to visits to schools and various organisations.
Our gallery here includes the Princess Royal, Princess Anne visiting Felixstowe College. The princess was the exclusive girls’ school’s official visitor and she attended many times over the years to watch performances, present prizes and cut the ribbon to open new facilities.
The Queen is pictured at what is now the BT research laboratories at Martlesham Heath, opening the centre in 1975 when communications were still run by the Post Office.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles is at Helmingham Hall and the Queen Mother at Snape Maltings.
