Royal Visit

The year was 1955.

Britain’s Princess Margaret visited Trinidad.

In Arima, a young Maureen Subero was given the honour of presenting a bouquet of pink anthuriums to ‘The Dolly Princess’.

Zelina Ali-Aziz: The Subero’s at that time lived on Queen Street a little after the dial then it was Ms.Olive the seamstress and then the Mathura’s. I do not know if they moved to St Joseph St. But we all grew up together on Queen St.

Andrew Amann: That year I lined up with my school children from Malabar R.C. School and watched the beautiful Princess Margaret and her ladies go by.

Pamella Joseph-Smith: I remember that day My class lined up on Longden Street close to Assee’s home!
