Royal visits to Jersey

Landing of Queen Victoria in Victoria Harbour, Jersey, on the 3d September 1846

In July, King Charles III and Queen Camilla will visit Jersey.

This is the opportunity to take a look in the archives of the Lord Coutanche Library and to rediscover past royal visits to the Island, through books, pamphlets, ephemera, prints, and newspapers.

Here are some examples.
