菲利普王子参观婆罗州岛1959。Prince Philip in Borneo


The Royal Yacht “Britannia” took Prince Philip to Borneo, where he visited British colonies and protectorates in the island. A Royal visit to this part of the world is a rare event. Malays, Chinese, Dyaks and everyone left no doubt about the popularity of the occasion. The British protected State of Brunei is rich in oil and the Prince went to have a look at some of the oil-fields in this territory. ® Previously, at Brunei Airport, the Sultan was present to make His Royal Highness welcome, when he arrived in his Heron aircraft. After greetings, members of the State Council were presented by the British Resident. There was heavy rain in Kuching, the capital. But crowds were out to see the Prince. The Astana (or Palace) is now the residence of the Governor, Sir Anthony Abell. Then, the Prince inspected a Guard of Honour on the wharf, where James Brooke landed nearly 120 years ago. He became the first English rajah of Sarawak, now a Crown Colony. San Dakan now, a town in British North Borneo, and a warm welcome by the Chinese people with dragons.
