Duke of Kent to visit Isle of Wight

A royal visitor is set to check out the Isle of Wight Steam Railway in May.

The Duke of Kent will be travelling to the island on May 10th, as part of his role as president of the Scouting Association.

Part of his visit will include a lunch at Haseley Manor at Arreton, in aid of the Isle of Wight Scouts Corf Camp Appeal, which is raising funds for so older buildings at Corf Camp can be replaced.

According to the Isle of Wight Council, it will be the fourth time in the last couple of years the Duke of Kent has headed to the island.

He has previously paid visits to GKN Aerospace, PhysE, RF Engines and Inflight Peripherals, as well as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution lifeboat station in East Cowes.

The Duke of Kent is arguably best known as the vice-chairman of British Trade International, a role which he held from 1976.
