Today, HRH The Duchess of Cambridge is to visit the town of Grimsby for a series of engagements. Her Royal Highness will be making her first official visit to the town as a member of the Royal Family and for Grimsby.

Grimsby has quite a distinguished history in terms of longevity. It features in the Domesday book of 1086, making the community over 900 years old. At the time, it was recorded with a population of just 200. Nowadays it has a population of about 90,000.
