WE have delved into our archives to bring you a selection of photos of when Queen Elizabeth II visited our region.

The earliest image comes from 1947 when she accompanied George VI to Peebles – with her mother, Princess Margaret and the Duke of Edinburgh.

She also visited Tweeddale in 1989 and we have an excellent image of Her Majesty outside of the Memorial Hall in Innerleithen, courtesy of the team at the Live Borders Museum and Gallery.

Queen Elizabeth also made an appearance in Peebles back in the summer of 2013, when she visited the John Buchan Museum.

She was met on her arrival by the then Lord-Lieutenant of Tweeddale Captain Sir David Younger and Tweeddale MP David Mundell.

Mr Mundell said: "The Queen revealed to me that she was thrilled to see so many people on her arrival, she is really interested in the whole John Buchan story who had close links with her parents and of course from when when John Buchan was the Governor General of Canada.

"Her Majesty was also delighted to be presented with a letter to her mother from John Buchan. She was hugely impressed with the layout of the museum and this has been a fabulous opportunity to showcase the museum and indeed Peebles."

And he added: "I was hugely honoured to be able to show the Queen round."

Her Majesty met members of the Buchan family before touring the museum to view exhibits and meet staff.

In the courtyard of the Chambers Institution, the Queen also met representatives of the local community and viewed the War Memorial before continuing to the Council Hall and Council Chambers where she met John Buchan Trustees, donors to the museum, representatives of the Chambers Institution Trust and local officials before signing the visitors' book.

The Queen was later given a tour of the newly renovated Abbotsford House – the former home of renowned writer Sir Walter Scott.

Her next visit to the region would come just two years later when she opened the Borders Railway.

Large crowds gathered on September 9, 2015 to welcome the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

The occasion had a special significance for the Queen, who that day also celebrated becoming Britain's longest-serving monarch.

She said: "The Duke of Edinburgh and I are delighted to be back in the Borders today and, especially, to have arrived by train!

"It has been wonderful to witness the excitement which the return of the railway has brought here.

"The Borders Railway brings so much promise for sharing and invigorating this most beautiful countryside as a place to work, live and enjoy.

"Prince Philip and I are very grateful for the warmth of your welcome on this occasion.

"Many including you, First Minister [Nicola Sturgeon], have also kindly noted another significance attaching to today, although it is not one to which I have ever aspired.

"Inevitably, a long life can pass by many milestones; my own is no exception. But I thank you all, and the many others at home and overseas, for your touching messages of great kindness."
