A crowd of about 100, including a fair sprinkling of undergraduates

A crowd of about 100, including a fair sprinkling of undergraduates, saw Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret arrive at Stanley Woolstons antique shop in St Andrews Street, Cambridge on one of the private shopping visits which they so often make while at Sandringham. The Royal Party remained inside for an hour and during this time one of the biggest crowds to be seen had collected. The pavements on both sides of the street were a solid mass of people and shop assistants took up vantage positions in windows overlooking the scene. The mid-day meal must have been late in many homes judging by the number of housewives with heavily-laden shopping baskets who stood in the crowd. 13th January 1954

EDITORS COMMENTS
A Royal Encounter in Cambridge: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret drew a crowd of about 100, including many enthusiastic undergraduates, as they made a special visit to Stanley Woolstons antique shop on St Andrews Street. This private shopping excursion was one of their cherished traditions during their stay at Sandringham. The anticipation was palpable as the royal party arrived, captivating everyone's attention for an hour-long exploration inside the store. The scene outside was nothing short of spectacular. Both sides of the street were packed with people, forming a solid mass that stretched as far as the eye could see. Shop assistants eagerly positioned themselves in windows overlooking this extraordinary sight. It seemed that even lunchtime had been delayed for many households, judging by the presence of housewives clutching heavily-laden shopping baskets amidst the throng. The year was 1954, and this snapshot from memory lane captures not just fashion trends and mid-century style but also showcases a momentous occasion when locals caught a glimpse of royalty up close. The Queen Mother exuded elegance in her fur stole while Princess Margaret radiated youthful charm beside her. This photograph is more than just an image; it encapsulates a shared experience etched into the collective memory of those who witnessed it firsthand—a rare encounter with British royalty that left an indelible mark on Cambridge's history.
