On the afternoon of July 9th, Michael and I went downtown and claimed a viewing spot on the sidewalk across from City Hall. Soon, HRH Princess Margaret (younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II) and her daughter Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones arrived in an RCMP-chauffeured car. They were officially received by the Mayor Vic Powell, while a large crowd stood in the brilliant sunshine. Princess Margaret said a few words and then went inside to tour City Hall for a short time. When she and her daughter came back outside, they smiled and waved to the public before getting into their car. I think they also visited a local mine that afternoon.
