Plan to Open Skegness Pier by Prince of Wales

A writer in Society says:-” In regard to the proposed visit of the Prince of Wales to Skegness, to which I referred a fortnight ago, I regret to find that his Royal Highness will not be able to make it convenient to honour the deserving place with his presence.

”The Duke of Edinburgh, however, is expected to visit the Lincolnshire coast on a tour of inspection very shortly, and the ceremony of opening the Skegness Pier, which it was intended the Prince of Wales should be requested to perform, will be accomplished by the Sailor Prince.”
