A Royal Princess Tea – Feb. 7 at Lynnhaven House

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

The Virginia Beach History Museums will host a royal tea at the Lynnhaven House Colonial Education Center on Saturday, Feb. 7, at noon. The tea will celebrate the 350th anniversary of the birth of Anne, princess of Denmark and later queen of Great Britain.


Program participants will enjoy an elegant afternoon of tea and delicious foods in honor of the historic connection between Princess Anne and the county named for her, which evolved into the modern City of Virginia Beach. Participants are invited to pen their greetings and well-wishes for Princess Anne, which will be sent to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The portrait of Queen Anne, which is normally exhibited at City Hall, will be on display in the exhibit room at the Colonial Education Center for the program.


A limited number of tickets are available for $15 per person at the Colonial Education Center and the Francis Land House. For more information, call (757) 385-5100.
