Princess Anne visits Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd

A plaque celebrating one of Princess Anne’s visits last week may not be out of this world, but by this time next year, it will be!

The Princess was visiting Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd and was welcomed by the Deputy Lieutenant of Surrey, Major-General Tim Sulivan before being given a tour of the facility by Executive Chairman, Sir Martin Sweeting and CEO, Patrick Wood. During her tour, Princess Anne unveiled the plaque to commemorate her visit, this forms part of the mechanical structure of one of the company’s satellites that will be launched into space during 2017.

Sir Martin Sweeting commented: “I am delighted to welcome Her Royal Highness and our other distinguished guests today.  SSTL has been based in Guildford on the University Research Park for over 30 years and is an example of the powerful synergy between academic research and commercial exploitation that has resulted in a world-leading company pioneering small satellites that are used for improving agriculture, disaster monitoring, navigation and communications. Guildford has a thriving business community and strong transport links.”

The Princess Royal opens affordable housing development

The latest development for Havebury Housing in Bury St Edmunds was officially opened by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal.

Located on the site of the old Priors Inn, Perry Barn Close is a development that has 33 houses and flats. It will provide affordable housing to more than 60 residents. Some of the properties were completed in May. Princess Anne met Havebury staff and current tenants.

Rachael Leeves lives in a two-bed semi-detached home with her 16-month-old daughter, Matilda. On meeting the royal, she said: “I can’t wait to share the experience with Matilda when she’s old enough. Not everyone can say they’ve had a real Princess in their home. It was a real privilege to meet Princess Anne. I was very nervous but she was very easy to talk to and so down-to-earth and she really put me at my ease.”

Princess Anne presents Royal Yachting Association Lifetime Achievement Award

The Princess Royal presented the awards last week, at the 2016 Royal Yachting Association’s Volunteer awards. Around forty volunteers received awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award for Rob Watson of Ullswater Yacht Club. Rob has been with the club for over forty years and during that time has held many offices including secretary, vice-commodore and commodore, he is currently treasurer.

Watson said: “I was most surprised to be singled out and very honoured to receive the award. This only happened because of the support I have received over the past 40 years from my wife Judith and the commitment and enthusiasm of so many members who have helped us and worked with me in various roles at UYC. I offer my sincere thanks to them all and to those who nominated me for the award.”

When the Princess Royal presented the award to Rob, she also commented on the achievements of the yacht club. This was both with work that the volunteers did along with many others in the Lake District clearing up after the severe floods, and their work promoting sailing as a hobby. The club’s “I am TeamGB” day broke the record for the most number of taster sessions booked in a single day.

Princess Anne arrives in Lincolnshire to visit Boston Stump

On Thursday 15 December, Princess Anne was in Lincolnshire to officially mark the reopening of a restored Boston Stump church devastated by floods in 2013 when the banks of the River Haven burst.

The flood on 5 December 2013 affected 700 properties and businesses on 50 streets in the town and the church was flooded by two feet of water, which took several months to dry out, and is believed to have caused approximately £1 million worth of damage.

The church was re-opened in February of this year after a period of closure in which improvement works (including lifting the floor in places to fit new pipework) and the installation of a new boiler house took place.

Princess Anne conducts her first royal engagement of the year

Princess Anne arrived in Oxford yesterday, for the annual Farming Conference, of which she is the Honorary President.

The Princess Royal’s visit to Oxford comes after just days into the New Year. It seems the Princess Royal is keen to keep the reputation of being one of the hardest working royals.

So what is The Oxford Farming Conference? Well besides from the obvious – it taking place in Oxford, it is a charity that strives to educate and provide knowledge about agriculture. The charity has been up and running in Oxford for an astonishing 80 years! The conference commences every year at the start of January, this year taking place on the 3rd 4th and 5th, with Princess Anne attending the 5th of January conference.

The Princess Royal opens Olympic Legacy Pool

On Wednesday, Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal opened the Olympic Legacy 50-M Swimming Pool at the Mount Kelly school in Tavistock, Devon. Mount Kelly boasts a number of olympic successes. Among them, Olympian, Sharon Davies. It is the site where 6 Paralympians, 72 international swimmers and 17 Olympians have trained.

There has been a shortage of 50-m swimming training facilities in the southwest of England. Mount Kelly’s 50-m pool was built with the help of Sport England and 706k and money from the National Lottery fund. The pool opened last September and is in high demand.

Pupils attending the school use the pool for training. Others from near and far swimming clubs use the pool for long course training. The children’s swimming national programme, ASA Learn to Swim also utilise the facilities.

North-east school to receive royal opening

In a month’s time, Anne, The Princess Royal will open a new North-east school. The ribbon-cutting ceremony to open Midmill school, located in Kintore, Aberdeenshire will take place on 1 March.

The state-of-the-art facility cost £11.5 million to build. It opened to students in November of last year. Scott Calder, head teacher at Midmill told the Kintore community website on the first day of school about being part of the process of creating and establishing a new school: “The most rewarding thing about being a teacher is seeing the journey young people take on their lives throughout school,” Scott commented. “It’s always great to hear how well pupils are doing once they leave primary school and move on to secondary education.

“I’ve been very lucky with the opportunities I’ve had in my career. As Depute Head Teacher at Hill of Banchory, I was able to support the staff team and head teacher to set up a brand new school and now I can take everything I’ve learned from that experience so that Midmill School can aim for excellence too.”

It is interesting that scientists are using light that is much brighter than the sun under microscopes to study drug molecules, catalysts and other things. Princess Anne had to wear sunglasses while she was at the laboratories to cut a ribbon on the unveiling of the new microscope.

Princess Royal visits Diamond Light Source Laboratories

Earlier this week, Anne, Princess Royal visited the Diamond Light Source Laboratories in Harwell to commemorate its tenth anniversary. The Queen opened the facilities a decade ago where the lights of this microscope, which omits light ten billion times brighter than the sun, were first turned on.

Her Royal Highness had to wear sunglasses indoors as she explored the laboratories. She also cut a ribbon on a new ‘beamline’. Diamond is the UK’s national synchrotron or a massive microscope.

A large ring-shaped particle accelerator is located at its centre. The ‘machine’ fires electrons at amazing speeds. The speed causes the light to be as bright as it is — ten-thousand times than the sun. This light then is aimed toward ‘beamlines’ shown in laboratories located around this ring. Scientists from several disciplines from all around the globe can use the microscope to study everything from drug molecules to catalysts for car exhausts, according to the Oxford Times.

Princess Anne to attend 100th anniversary ceremony for British maritime disaster

Monday the 21st of February marks the 100th anniversary of one of the worst maritime disasters to occur in British waters. There were 616 South African men and 30 crew who lost their lives off the coast of the Isle of Wight on that fateful day in February. Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal will attend a memorial ceremony commemorating the sinking of the SS Mendi.

During World War I, the British enlisted the labour of South Africans. The SS Mendi collided with the much larger cargo ship the SS Darro just ten naudical miles south of St Catherine’s Point. Some of the men were killed on impact, while others were trapped below deck. Remarkably, the SS Darro remained unscathed. It took the SS Mendi just twenty-five minutes to sink.

The South African High Comission has organised the ceremony. They have arranged for a ship to leave South Hampton, follow the course of the SS Mendi and go to the Isle of Wight where a wreath will be left at the site where the tragic accident occured.

Princess Anne visits Epping

Epping Forest was happy to the receive the Princess Royal on Monday, during which she took part in the opening of a new citizens’ advice bureau on the town’s high street. Her Royal Highness was accompanied during the occasion by Epping’s MP, Eleanor Laing.

During the opening, Princess Anne met with the new staff of the bureau, as well as representatives of the Theydon Trust who helped to build the facility. The choice of Princess Anne to cut the ribbon to the facility was by no means thoughtless, either. The Princess Royal also serves as a patron to the National Association of Citizens’ Advice Bureau, as such the action was as much to recognise the Princess’s role in the charity’s work.

Ms Laing said of the occasion, “The Citizens Advice Bureau provides a valuable service to the local community not just in Epping but throughout Epping Forest, and it is great that they have been able to move into such a marvellous new base.” She also added, “The Princess’s visit is a good way of saying thank you to them from the whole community.”

Attendance was up this year to 8,000 at the Thainstone Centre, near Inverurie, Scotland, which was an increase of 3,000 from last year.

The Spring Show is a major event in the farming calendar of the northeast farming community. Farmers from the region can view new machinery and technology. They can also view the best of livestock and horse breeders.

Janelle Anderson is the first female president of the society. All the judges at the show were women. The Princess Royal paid tribute to her by saying how this should be a reminder of how far women have come in the agricultural sector.

I admire Princess Anne's efforts to encourage more girls to become engineers. Not too many females are involved in engineering due to the fact that it has always been traditionally a male oriented job. Some girls don't feel comfortable having a job with mostly men because dealing with the sexism can be difficult. I would not want a job like that.

Princess Royal Backs Campaign To Get More Girls in Wales Involved in Science and Engineering

On 13 March, business leaders, academics and members of the Welsh Government joined up at the Senedd, Cardiff to try and boost the number of women in STEM(science, technology, engineering, and maths). Also joining them was the Princess Royal.

The WISE celebration of Talented Women brings together influential people who are backing a Welsh Governmental report to address STEM skill shortages by encouraging more women to get involved in STEM subjects.

Helen Wollaston, chief executive of WISE, said: “Wales has an impressive number of female scientists in top positions, including the Chief Scientific Adviser and the newly appointed deputy vice-chancellor at Cardiff University. They are living proof that choosing science opens doors.”

It is interesting that Princess Anne will visit Alex. I have to see what kind of jewelry the store has. I imagine their selections are very splendid with all the necklaces, rings or earrings made out of diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and etc. These are gifts a husband should always give his wife because he must always treat her like a Princess.

Princess Anne supports the fashion and textile industry

It has been announced the HRH Princess Anne will make a series of visits across the country to promote the “Let’s Make It Here” initiative of the UK Fashion and Textile Association of which she is the president. The visits seek to recognise the skills and talents within the textile, fashion and jewellery manufacturing sector throughout the United Kingdom. The Princess Royal will also see examples of how the companies are seeking to spread the knowledge via apprentices so that these vital skills will not die out.

Some of the companies Princess Anne is due to visit are well established; West Yorkshire textiles company Joshua Ellis has been specialising in cashmere for the last two hundred and fifty years. Johnstons of Elgin follow closely behind and two hundred and twenty years of kilt manufacture. They are the largest fashion and textile employer in the country and have the scheme to pass on the traditional skills of kilt manufacture to apprentices at their training centre in Hawick.

At the other end of the scale is Alex Monroe; Alex is a London-based has been trading for thirty years in designer jewellery. “Britain is home to world class manufacturers, producing everything from advanced materials to traditional fabrics used by brands globally,” commented Adam Mansell, CEO of UKFT.

I think Princess Anne is a very hard working royal. She is always committed to her job and deserves more recognition. Her nieces and nephews can definitely learn a lot from her about what it means to be a real royal!
