Following the passing of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, the Ross Gazette looks back on previous royal visits to the town.

Ross-on-Wye has a proud tradition of welcoming royal guests, although until the Queen’s first visit on April 24, 1957, Ross had not had an official visit from a reigning monarch for 1,000 years. She visited Ross again in 2003 when headteacher Nigel Griffiths welcomed her to John Kyrle High School on Friday, July 11.
