Royal Visit to Austria, 1969

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have just finished their 2-day visit to Austria. Click HERE for Day 1 and HERE for Day 2. In honour of their visit, we are flashing back to the Queen’s State Visit to Austria in 1969.

The Queen and Duke were greeted by Austrian President Franz Jonas at Vienna Airport, and met dignitaries. Afterwards, the couple drove through the city, and knocked over a photographer.

Later, the Queen and Duke met members of the Austrian Parliament. They also visited the Spanish Riding School, where the Queen was gifted two ponies, and they also watched a Horse show.

In the evening, there was a glittering Gala reception in honour of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at the Schonbrunn Palace. The Queen wore Queen Alexandra’s Kokoshnik Tiara with the Godman Necklace.
