Royal visits always attract a huge crowd, and that proved no different when Princess Alexandra visited Ipswich Hospital in 1979.
The Honourable Lady Ogilvy made a speech at the opening and shook hands with many of the people who attended, including dozens of doctors, nurses and patients, and those from the local community.
Princess Alexandra, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, also enjoyed a tour of the facility during her visit.
