Royal Visits

 Members of the Royal Family have honoured Sussex with various memorable visits, during which the community would bring out the best of what Sussex had to offer. The Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VII, visited New Brunswick during his tour of Canada in 1860. The Marquis of Lorne and his wife, Princess Louise, visited Sussex in 1879. In honour of this visit, the name of the 8th Cavalry Regiment based in Camp Sussex was changed to 8th Princess Louiseā€™s Regiment of Cavalry. The first tour of Canada by a reigning monarch was made by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939 during which the Royal Train made an official stop in Sussex. In 1985, Prince Andrew opened the Dominion Building as the Town Hall. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip visited Sussex in 2002 as part of the Jubilee visit to Canada. The Queen opened the new Sussex Elementary School.
