Crawley’s, MP Henry Smith, has paid tribute to Her Majesty the Queen and talked with fond memories about when she visited the town.
In 1950, the then-Princess Elizabeth officially opened Manor Royal, after the Princess herself had chosen the name.
Her Majesty, along with the Duke of Edinburgh visited Crawley a total of 6 times, with the last being in 2006 at the opening of the new Thomas Bennett Community College.
