Royal visit: Prince Charles returns to the Albert Dock

The Beatles Story team were excited to welcome HRH Prince Charles on his return to the Royal Albert Dock today, 30 years after he re-opened the iconic Liverpool site.

His Royal Highness arrived on the Royal Albert Dock directly opposite the entrance to the award-winning attraction. He was greeted in style by four members of staff wearing Sgt. Pepper suits.

 

Prince Charles was here to tour the Royal Albert Dock, which is celebrating being awarded new Royal status for its 175th anniversary.

Those with long memories may remember the Prince re-opened the dock as a tourist attraction in back in 1988 - after years in which it had fallen into disrepair.

The Beatles Story was one of the first attractions to open on the dock almost 30 years ago in May 1990 and it is still going strong, now welcoming over 300,000 visitors per year.

 

Diane Glover, Marketing Manager at The Beatles Story, said: “It was lovely to meet Prince Charles and introduce him to members of our team suitably dressed in Sgt. Pepper suits. He professed to be a fan of the famous Liverpool Fab Four and was amazed at how popular they are still with visitors from all corners of the world.”

In 2012, Charles’ wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall visited The Beatles Story to unveil a plaque commemorating the 50th anniversary of the band. The Royal Beatles fan even bought five t-shirts for her grandchildren as a souvenir.
