In 1932, the then Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) attended the official opening of Highbury's West Stand. In 2006, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh officially opened the Emirates Stadium, as the Queen had suffered a back injury and could not attend. Later the Queen honoured the club by inviting the chairman, manager and first team to join her for afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace. This made Arsenal the first club to be invited to the palace for afternoon tea. Get the Arsenal F.C. Bar Scarf Sign, nail it to the wall and celebrate your near royalty status.
