Remembering past royal visits

Durham Cathedral has been visited by a number of members of the British royal family over the years. Her Majesty the Queen is pictured on the right greeting children in the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral on her Silver Jubilee tour in 1977. The Queen Mother visited the cathedral in 1956 and 1987, and Princess Anne visited the cathedral in 1971. 

The most recent royal visit to Durham Cathedral was in 2017, in which The Prince of Wales officially opened Durham Cathedral's museum.
