On October 31, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh arrived in East Sussex for a one-day visit to the region.

This morning Her Majesty and the duke visited the West Quay Fisheries in Newhaven where they “…were shown more than 40 varieties of fish caught off the Sussex coast by a local fleet…” according to the London Evening Standard.  Thereafter, Her Majesty and the duke arrived in Beddingham to open the “…new £5 million 68-bed youth hostel at South Downs National Park.”

Soon, Her Majesty and the duke arrived in Lewes where they visited Harveys Brewery.  After a nice lunch they made their way to Brighton where Her Majesty officially opened the “…new historical resource center for East Sussex and Brighton and Hove…” known as The Keep.
