IN PICTURES: Remembering the Queen Mother's trips to Norfolk
- Credit: Archant Library
After the bombing of Buckingham Palace in 1940 during the Second World War, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother famously uttered: "I am glad we have been bombed. Now we can look the East End in the eye."
The nation's beloved 'Queen Mum' might have been queen for fewer than 15 years but her popularity spanned many decades, unshaken by the highs and lows of royal life.
The Queen Mother died 20 years ago on March 30, 2002 at the age of 101, so today we are celebrating her memory by looking back at some of her many trips to visit Norfolk.
Please enjoy these old photos from the Eastern Daily Press archives and let us know if you remember seeing or meeting the Queen Mother in years gone by.
