TRH The Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall - HALIFAX - February 2018



































TRH The Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall on their visit to The Piece Hall,  a former Georgian Cloth Hall that has been given a multi-million renovation. 

Large crowds greeted them on their mid-morning arrival, and lots of local schoolchildren sang to them. The Prince and Duchess were as always fantastic to chat to. I had a lovely chat with the Duchess about her visit to the Bronte Parsonage that afternoon. She said she had always been wanting to visit.

After a seperrate tour of the many shops now located at the Hall,  they waved from the balcony to the crowd gathered in the Piazza  and then unvelied a plaque marking their visit.

HM The Queen & HRH The Duke of Edinburgh Norfolk - February 2018






Close-up of The Queen's Brooch, thought to be a wedding present in 1947.









This was HM The Queen's final appearance at church whilst on her Christmas / New Year Stay at Sandringham House, Norfolk.

In the bright sunshine she went on a walkabout, accepting flowers and gifts from well-wishers on her way to meet school-children at the nearby Village Hall.
