HRH The Princess Royal is to attend this year’s Suffolk Show on Wednesday June 1, 2011, at Trinity Park.
Show organisers said they were absolutely delighted and extremely honoured when they received the news that Her Royal Highness is to attend the Show.
Executive Director Christopher Bushby said: “This will be the Princess Royal’s fourth visit to the Show. Her Royal Highness’s programme is expected to visit all four corners of the Show and present the Long Service Awards to individuals who have worked for more than 30 years in the agricultural industry. We are very delighted and honoured that she is attending.”
As a Member and Director of the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and the British representative for the International Olympic Committee, it is likely she will spend some time in the Suffolk Sports Village and bring encouragement to Suffolk’s Olympic and paralympic hopefuls who will be present. Many of them will be attending and demonstrating their sports in this newly expanded area near the Foxhall entrance where the Olympic mascots Wenlock and Mandeville will also be present.
