Memories of the Queen visiting Sussex

A charity has been fondly remembering the times The Queen visited its headquarters at Chailey.

The Royal visit at Chailey Heritage Foundation was in June 1945 as a Princess, accompanying Queen Elizabeth I and Princess Margaret. 

During this visit, Princess Elizabeth was shown the Baby clinic at Chailey Heritage which, by Royal permission, was named after her - "Princess Elizabeth Clinic for Tiny Babes".

Chailey Heritage Foundation Chief Executive Helen Hewitt said: "These are indeed treasured and very special photographs from our archives.

"We are, of course, all deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II.

"Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time and we join the nation in mourning a remarkable Queen who dedicated her life to serving her country and the Commonwealth."
