Princess Anne to take three-day Isle of Wight trip

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays for Cowes Week next month may need to be on the lookout for royal visitors during their time on the island.

Princess Anne is set to travel to the Isle of Wight on August 9th to get an insight into how the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week event is put together each year.

She will also visit Bembridge Royal National Lifeboat Institution lifeboat station, as well as attending a prizegiving reception at the Royal Yacht Squadron followed by the Transat Dinner.

On the last day of her Isle of Wight trip (August 11th), Princess Anne will unveil a plaque to officially name Trinity Landing in Cowes, as well as starting the XOD Centenary Race.

Victoria Lenz, the Royal Yachting Association sailing development officer, recently said she is delighted Princess Anne will be watching the Isle of Wight OnBoard Festival during her stay on the island.
