Included in the selection are several wonderful images of her visit to Portsmouth in June 1977, and to HMS Dryad in July 1973.

She was there as HMS Invincible returned to Portsmouth, carrying British troops home from the Falklands War in September 1982 and made a visit to see Rangers at Trafalgar Place Community Centre, Fratton in July 1980.

Queen Elizabeth was at Southwick House looking around the D-Day Map room in 1973 and also went on to visit the Naval Base in the same year.

She met with then US President Bill Clinton at the Guildhall in June 1994 and as we will all remember she met the then US President Donald Trump during the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in June 2019.
