Where are they now? Does anybody recognise or know who these folk in the photo are? This shot was taken outside The Castle Hotel on the Queens Coronation day 2 June 1953.
Queen Elizabeth actually ascended the throne immediately after the death of her father King George VI on 6th February 1952. But it was considered inappropriate to have a Coronation festival and celebration during the period of mourning that followed the death of the preceding sovereign. This is why we are celebrating the Queens Jubilee on 2nd June. Lots of fantastic Jubilee activity happening in Llandovery and at The Castle Hotel this weekend, so please do come on down and join in with us.
