    If they did it was unwise, Onchan is no place to take young children to.

    The only one of the Queens children alive in the 50's was prince Charles who was born in 1948. The Queen doesn't holiday on the Isle of Man, she usually Holiday's at Balmoral in Scotland.

    So it would seem that you have all your facts wrong.

  • As Manxbiter says, the Archibald Knox was not built in the 1950s. Its forerunner was a cocktail bar in Douglas called The Jolly Roger. He knows this because his own mother - also called Elizabeth - used to take the family on holidays there. Money wasn't the only thing that was tight, which would have come in useful for earning a few shillings round the back of The Jolly Roger.ย

    No, they chose the less scarier option, of visiting the the "Black Museum" at Scotland Yard.

    Don't be silly, why would a family and children go to a gay bar? Prince Edward goes alone telling his wife he is off on business or something. As you can see lots of trees and cars are about, the perfect place for dogging.

    considering that the Archibald Knox is a pub and it doesn't take visitors, and it hadn't even been built in the fifties the answer is no you silly little troll.
