Knareborough stately home celebrates royal ties
3:18pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
As the christening of Prince George, the Queen’s Great Grandson takes place in St James’ Palace in London tomorrow (Wednesday, October 22), an historic North Yorkshire hall is joining in the celebrations to mark its historic royal ties.
Goldsborough Hall, near Knaresborough, was the scene of the christening 90 years ago of King George V’s first grandchild, Master George Lascelles.
The hall was the Yorkshire home of Princess Mary and Viscount Henry Charles George Lascelles, later sixth Earl of Harewood.
The christening of their first son was a momentous occasion for the Royal family at the time with King George V and Queen Mary attending.
The owners of the Grade II listed stately hall, Mark and Clare Oglesby, are marking the christening with a commemorative christening cake topped with a blue Crown which will be served as part of a Royal Afternoon Tea to mark the hall’s historic royal ties.
