The Princess Royal is in Shropshire today

Princess Anne was being welcomed to the county by Shropshire’s new Lord Lieutenant Anna Turner at the Willey Estate near Broseley before heading to the 1618 Church of England Primary Free School at Barrow.

Headmaster Joe Leppington, school governor Richard Jackson and chair of governors Selina Graham were welcoming the princess, who was set to unveil a plaque marking the visit and launching the Barrow 1618 Education and Training programme.

Then she was set to open the Riding for the Disabled Cavalier Centre near Much Wenlock and see the facilities now available for those needing support in the horse riding world.

The afternoon’s visit was set to end with the unveiling of a plaque by the princess to officially open the centre after many months of planning and fund raising.
