This week we were treated in Gloucestershire when HMH The Princess Royal visited the area.

Princess Anne made three appearances throughout Tuesday as she visited Yate Outdoor Sports Complex in Yate, a Citizens Advice Bureau in Thornbury and Gloucestershire Heritage Hub in Kingsholm.

All of these events went very well with Princess Anne being able to converse with many people throughout the day.

Some times the royal family get a lot of stick from the people in this country, however from The Princess Royal's showing at the events this week they are truly interested in the work being done on a community level.

At YOSC, there were around 100 students from Brimsham Green School and a number of athletes in the middle of training sessions, Princess Anne took the time to speak to the majority of them.

As I previously said they can be subjected to criticism, however the couple of minutes that she spends talking to volunteers and other people at events all around the country will stay with them for a lifetime.
