  • Description

    The Queen saw a large display of fish, fresh from the sea, when she arrived at Grimsby with the Duke of Edinburgh on the second day of their tour of the East Coast and Scotland. After a first-day visit to north Lincolnshire, during which the Queen performed several official functions -- she opened a bridge, unveiled a memorial window and inaugurated a road safety scheme for children -- the two royal visitors travelled on to Grimsby. Overnight, they slept in the Royal Yacht Britannia in the river Humber and then were brought by barge to the dockside. The Queen, in summary dress and hat, toured the fish docks.

    She listened attentively while officials explained how different areas of the country preferred different kinds of fish -- how states varied, from region to region, about the same breeds. The Queen was then offered a selection of fish for the Britannia.

    Next day, Sunday June 29th, the royal tour was extended to visit Holy Island, two miles off the coast of Northumberland -- an island which is joined to the mainland by flat sands at low tide. The Islamic got its name in the 7th century AD, when a monastery was founded there. This was the first royal visit to the island for many centuries.
