Nostalgia: The Day that Lady Diana came to town

WE’RE revisiting the year Lady Diana came to Ipswich in the latest instalment of our chronological look through The Star archives.

A SPECIAL royal visitor was one of the highlights of 1990 – pictured here in the latest instalment of our chronological look through the Star picture archives.

Diana, Princess of Wales brought royalty and glamour to Ipswich on her visit to the town.

Elsewhere on these pages which take a look back at the start of the 1990s we have pupils taking part in the Mazda Challenge at sports centres in Ipswich; the Ipswich Post Office safe driving awards; a Barclays Bank presentation to youngsters, and a school holiday playscheme in Martlesham - see the gallery above right.
