A collection of photographs, china, magazines and other fascinating objects revealing the special connection that the Royal family has with West Norfolk are to go on show as part of the celebrations of the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The exhibition, entitled Royal Connections, will go on show at King's Lynn Custom House.

It will feature photographs dating back to 1946 as well as images of more recent engagements.

Railway tickets and posters from the royal station at Wolferton provide an insight into the Royal visits to the area, illustrating what West Norfolk has come to mean to the family and showing how their close relationship with the area has helped to shape the borough.

Sandringham House, the Royals' winter retreat, also features in the exhibition and the intriguing tale of how the royal family came to purchase the property is told.

The exhibition will be opened by West Norfolk mayor Zipha Christoper next Friday.

From then it will be open from Mondays to Saturday from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm, and 12 noon to 4.30 pm on Sunday until July 22.
