On May 17, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh arrived in Cornwall to begin their one-day visit to the area.
The day began with a visit to St. Ives where they visited the RNLI Lifeboat Station. Whilst there Her Majesty unveiled a new plaque and met with staff. From there Her Majesty and the duke arrived at the Tate Gallery where they met with employees and local dignitaries.
An hour later it off to St. Michael’s Mount where Her Majesty and the duke “…visited the castle on the island, had lunch with the St. Aubyn family, visited the local chapel…” and much more.
