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

BT broadband is down across the UK, the company has said.

The internet provider’s website has also crashed and many customers report the customer service line is down.

A BT spokesman said: “It is true that we are down at the moment.

‘We are aware of the problems and are working on them as fast as we can.’

Customers from around the UK reported problems with their internet and landlines on social media.

Keith Pestell tweeted: ‘BT internet down, support lines down and website down. I did get through to India and the lady said: It’s working here... really?’
