Queen’s visit to Brighton College 60 years ago after death

AFTER the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we looked back at her visit to Brighton College 60 years ago.

Her Royal Highness arrived for a tour of the grounds with Prince Philip on Monday 16 July 1962.

They are seen with then-Headmaster William Stewart walking past rows of students for the occasion.

The visit came about thanks to the efforts of the headmaster. He had met the Duke of Norfolk through their shared interest in cricket, and had often asked the Duke if he could arrange a visit from the Queen.

A Brighton College spokesman said: “During her visit, the Queen unveiled a plaque commemorating the day, which can still be seen on the outside of the chapel’s east wall.

“Those lucky enough to be there remember the day fondly and many Old Brightonians of the period consider it their fondest memory of their college days.

“Stewart later sent a thank you letter and received a very positive response from Buckingham Palace, confirming how much the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh enjoyed the trip.”
