Visit by HRH Princess Alexandra26 June 2019
On arrival at Old Romney, the Princess was received by HM Lord Lieutenant of Kent Viscount de L’Isle who presented the High Sheriff of Kent, Paul Barrett and Chairman of the Trust, Peter Anwyl-Harris.
With the Princess’ parting comment being that she must return one day to visit the other Marsh churches, Peter Anwyl-Harris reflects on a very successful day “I think she thoroughly enjoyed it. She was very interested in the churches and engaged with so many of those involved in their care, as well as spending time talking to many of the children at Brookland School. She was delightful.”
Princess Alexandra, 82 is a working member of the royal family and first cousin to Queen Elizabeth II. She is sister of the present Duke of Kent and Prince Michael of Kent.
All pictures to commemorate this special day were taken by Council Member Ian Hamilton.
