Ashburton: By Appointment Of HRH
Peter Hill-Wood today sensationally announced that Ashburton Grove will be officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen.
I thought that the stadium was already officially open having already played four games there, but this is a great honor nevertheless.
The Queen very rarely has anything to do with football but on this ocassion her and her husband, The Duke of Edinburgh, will embark on a trip to North London to officially open our grand new arena.
Peter Hill-Wood said, "We are absolutely delighted that Her Majesty is to officially open Emirates Stadium. It is a true honour and we are immensely looking forward to welcoming Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh to our new stadium next month. In 1932, the West Stand at Highbury was officially opened by the HRH The Prince of Wales, so we are again extremely honoured to have Royalty mark the start of the next chapter in the history of Arsenal Football Club.'
It seems quite appropriate that the Queen of England should officially open the new home of the Kings of London.
Nice one, Queen!
