Queen Elizabeth II died in the year of her Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of dedicated service to the throne, the longest serving monarch passed away surrounded by her family.

She served us all, and was never shy about meeting anyone, great or small. Archive photos from her many visits to Derbyshire show it.

The photos below show the Queen in Derby through the decades, from 1949 as a Princess to the 800th Royal Maundy ceremony just a few years ago. It’s clear from the pictures that enthusiasm for Her Majesty has not dimmed in Derby over the years.

Her visit in 1949 one that left a mark on the city that lasts up to the modern day. It was the official opening of the Council House, and she can be seen with the Duke of Edinburgh, flanked by halberdiers and city officials. She’d be Queen just 4 years later.

Take a look at these pictures through the ages in the gallery below. And let us know your memories of the Queen in the comments.
