Platinum Jubilee Celebration
This season at Kings Landing, we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by installing an exhibit titled “Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II”.
In 1976, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited Kings Landing with special emphasis on opening the Morehouse House. During her visit, she toured the village and boarded the newly constructed woodboat, the Brunswick Lion. The Royals loved the Saint John River. It’s a love that dates back to 1861 when Prince Alfred visited New Brunswick and took a steamboat excursion from Saint John to Fredericton. In Fredericton he also enjoyed a canoe ride with famous Wolastoqiyik guide, Gabe Acquin.
“Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II” tells the story of Queen Elizabeth’s visit to Kings Landing in July 1976, Prince Alfred’s visit in 1861, and the history of the Brunswick Lion. Click here to read the exhibit panels >>>
