Royal visit by Princess Beatrice
Princess Beatrice arrives at Aberdeen Music Hall to open a bazaar in aid of the Sick Children's Hospital. She was in Aberdeen to open Duthie Park on 27th September 1883. Queen Victoria was originally intended to perform the opening ceremony but she sustained an accident earlier in the year and was unable to undertake the engagement. Princess Beatrice, the Queen's youngest daughter, then residing at Balmoral Castle, officially opened the park in her place. The day was declared a public holiday and there were great celebrations throughout the city, concluding with a huge fireworks display over the River Dee.
