George IV first visited Ramsgate on the 25th September, 1821 and received a resounding welcome from the town’s population. He visited again that year on November 8th and  then on November 27th he commanded Lord Sidmouth to inform Ramsgate that the harbour was to be proclaimed a Royal Harbour. Ramsgate harbour remains  to this day the only Royal Harbour in the UK.
