HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh visited Portsmouth on April 30 to mark the 25th anniversary of the city’s D-Day Museum.

One of the exhibits that the couple viewed at the museum was an embroidered wall hanging that charts the events of June 6, 1944. The Queen was said to have paid special attention to the section of the embroidery that featured her father, King George VI, and Winston Churchill.

The Queen also visited the Guildhall in Portsmouth’s city center, where the newly-restored Pompey Chimes rang for the first time in six years.

The royal couple attended two receptions while in the city: one to honor members of the Portsmouth Normandy Veterans Association and members of the Women’s Land Army, and the other to honor military men and women who have recently returned from overseas operations.
