Even though George V proclaimed all German titles were to be given up by his family a century ago (July 17 1917), there is still physical evidence in our city of the Germanic royal house that once existed. Two commemoration stones relating to members of the royal house previous to the House of Windsor are so readily a part of the fabric of our daily lives but are probably in the most part overlooked.

A walk along Queen Street and on the corner with Aylward Street will present a building with a foundation stone that was laid by HRH Princess Henry of Battenberg in 1912. This was the married title of Queen Victoria's daughter Beatrice which was relinquished on 14 July 1917. From 17 July 1917 she was known as HRH the Princess Beatrice.

A visit to Sainsburys foyer in Commercial Road will provide the opportunity to see a commemoration stone for the opening of the Child's Ward of the Royal Hospital in 1909 by HH Princess Victoria of Schleswig

DRINK-DRIVER Jonathan Dove has been told to do 80 hours of unpaid work.

The 37-year-old, of The Timbers, Fareham, was stopped by police in Park Gate.

A breathalyser test showed he had 102 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath – almost three times the limit of 35mg.

Dove pleaded guilty to drink driving when he appeared at Fareham Magistrates’ Court.

He will have to carry out the work in the next year and was banned from driving for two years.

He was told to pay £40 in costs.
