HRH the Duchess of Cornwall Visits the Keats-Shelley House in its Centenary Year

April 29, 2009

The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Keats-Shelley House on Tuesday 28th April 2009. Her visit coincided with the 100th anniversary of the opening of the museum (3rd April 1909) and began with a tour of the collection, followed by the presentation of prizes to a selection of winners from this year’s Poetry Competition for Schools.

We were delighted to have the Duchess of Cornwall visit during this exciting time in the Museum’s history. HRH the Prince of Wales, the museum’s Patron, pledged his support for the organization and launched the centenary activities with a visit in 2002. The Queen Mother was the first Royal Patron of the KSMA and gave her support wholeheartedly for 52 years.
