Royal Visitors in 1951

I've found a little gem of a booklet at home. It's entitled The Royal Visit; dated the 1st June 1951; and it's a supplement to The Campbellian, Campbell College's school magazine.

Just to whet readers' appetites, I have scanned one of the many photographs which shows HM Queen Elizabeth (The Queen Mother) and her younger daughter, HRH The Princess Margaret. They are posing at the College's Quadrangle.

Directly behind the royal couple, His Excellency the Governor of Northern Ireland, Vice-Admiral the (4th) Earl Granville can just be seen, wearing naval uniform. Lord Granville was Queen Elizabeth's brother-in-law.

I intend to write a comprehensive article, including more pictures, about the royal visit to Campbell shortly.
