Princess Anne to visit Southeast Queensland

The Princess Royal will travel to the other side of the world in October to visit Queensland in Australia.


As part of her visit, she will see the good work of Cartmill Riding for the Disabled at Burpengary. The charity will be honoured for the work they do to bring out confidence in disabled people using the power of horses.

As we all know, the Queen’s daughter is a huge fan of all things horses, from horse racing to dressage. The charity says she is the right person to be patron of the Riding for the Disabled movement worldwide.

There is much excitement amongst the volunteers at Cartmill. Volunteer Joy Seiffert said the visit was proof that what they did was important.

“It’s a tremendous honour. Princess Anne is only going to be in Brisbane for three days. It’s a superb honour, not only for the centre itself but it’s the recognition of the work that the volunteers do,” Ms Seiffert said.

In October, the Princess will open the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, to be hosted at Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association at Bowen Hills.

Princess Anne last visited Australia in 2009 when she attended a memorial for the 171 victims of the Black Saturday bushfires.
