The Princess Royal will view some of the highlights of the Show, which is this year honouring horticulture. As President she will then attend the AGM of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth that takes place at the showground.
“We are very much looking forward to hosting Her Royal Highness at the South of England Show, which will showcase the best of British agriculture, equestrianism, food and drink and rural crafts and skills,” Michael Lambert, chairman of the South of England Agricultural Society andSecretary of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth mentioned in the Mid Sussex Times
“Horticulture is a central feature of this year’s show and we hope that she will enjoy some spectacular displays from the region’s specialists and schools, as well as seeing some of the superb equestrian events that we hold here.”
The last time Anne attended the South of England show was as President of the South of England Agricultural Society in 2004.
