Recalling fond memories of Princess Diana visiting Suffolk

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, and we want to hear your memories of the royal.
The Princess of Wales visited Suffolk and north Essex on a number of occasions and was always greeted by crowds of people wanting to meet her.
In 1986, she headed to the Suffolk Show and enjoyed the many activities and displays on offer while taking the time to speak with guests and the farming community.
In 1990, Princess Diana officially opened Crown Pools and visited the town’s Christchurch Park before heading on to Colchester, where she greeted members of the public who had lined the streets to meet her.
Her final official visit to the county was in 1993, when she formally opened St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds and William Wood House in Sudbury.
We would love to hear your memories of Princess Diana for a commemorative piece to mark the anniversary of her death on August 31.
