The Royal family are in the news so we thought we’d ask for your memories of their visits to the town.

There have been plenty of them down the years but who remembers Princess Anne and her arrival in Hartlepool in May 1970. Are you one of the people pictured?

Or how about this scene from 1988 which show crowds looking delighted as they get to meet Prince Charles. Are you one of them?

Or does this view of the crowds - gathered for the visit of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip on May 18, 1993 – trigger a particular memory.

In 2012, Prince Andrew was at Hartlepool College of Further Education to launch the new £53million Stockton Street campus. What do you remember of the day?
