The Queen & Prince Phillip in Romsey 2007
The Queen visited Romsey on the 8th of June 2007 to help celebrate the 400th anniversary of the charter which King James 1st, granted in 1607. Part of the visit was to meet lots of local schoolchildren (Gracie for one) at Romsey Abbey. The Queen and Duke also came to the 350th anniversary charter celebrations in 1957. They were regular visitors to Broadlands when Lord Mountbatten was alive.
Romsey's mayor arranged for two Romsey sisters, Peggy Tizzard and Molly Irvine,
(nearest the Queen), who worked in the town's Red Cross shop, to meet the Queen.
Both were over the moon after chatting to the monarch.
