Sea villa

Once the residence of a princess, Malta remembers the Queen | app

VALLETTA, Malta (AP) — A ramshackle villa outside Malta’s capital where a young Princess Elizabeth and her husband lived for a fondly remembered period before becoming queen has become a focal point of Malta’s remembrance of the deceased monarch and its links with the former British colony in the Mediterranean.

Flowers and wreaths filled the doorway of Villa Guardamangia, where Elizabeth and Prince Philip spent months at a stretch between 1949 and 1951, following the death of the woman who would serve 70 years as Queen Elizabeth II. Philip, a Royal Navy officer, was posted to Malta in the early years of the couple’s marriage.
