THE ARRAN BANNER 20 YEARS AGO

Saturday August 9, 1997

Royal occasion

Arran today welcomes Her Majesty the Queen. Fifty years after the Queen, then Princess Elizabeth visited the island, she is returning. Then she dined in Brodick Castle as the guest of the Duke of Montrose, today she will lunch in Brodick Castle as the guest of North Ayrshire Council.

There is little sign of panic but there is a growing sense of excitement behind the scenes. This is not only felt by the many people who have been invited to meet the Queen, or by the many children who will sing for her at the castle or form a guard of honour at the pier, but by almost everyone who will try and fit in a glimpse of her during the day.
