The Visit Of Queen Elizabeth II To Kelantan
On this day in 1972, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain with her husband Prince Philip and daughter Princess Anne arrived at the Pengkalan Chepa Airport, Kelantan. The aircraft carrying the royal entourage arrived at 11.00 a.m. for a six-hour visit and was joyously welcomed by His Royal Highness the Sultan and Raja Perempuan of Kelantan. Also present to welcome the royal entourage were His Highness the Crown Prince of Kelantan and his consort, the Chief Executive of State Government (Menteri Besar), Dato’ Asri b. Hj. Muda and his wife Datin Sakinah, and the State Secretary, Dato’ Nik Sulaiman b. Nik Daud. The royal entourage was accompanied by the British High Commissioner to Malaysia, Mr. Johnston, and Minister in Attendance, Dato Hamzah b. Abu Samah and his wife Toh Puan Hajjah Zainon. Various programs were arranged in conjunction with the visit which included a tour of the Silver & Handicrafts Center and Batik Factory in Kampong Puteh. Here the royal entourage was briefed on and had the opportunity to view the works of the silversmiths and batik printers. In addition, the delegation also visited the well-known recreational beach, Pantai Cinta Berahi. Among the local cultural events demonstrated were top spinning, kite-flying, coconut plucking skills and martial arts performances. Queen Elizabeth was also presented with locally-made souvenirs including batik-designed shadow puppets and a set of silver drinking cups in appreciation of the royal visit. Indeed, this visit created an air of joy and festivity among the people of Kelantan and was considered a great honour for them.
