Princess Anne takes in the Isle of Wight

Princess Anne is undertaking numerous activities as she visits different sites and groups on the Isle of Wight.

The Princess Royal - who is the only daughter of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh - learnt all about the Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week and made an appearance at the Royal Yacht Squadron yesterday (August 9th), the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

She is to speak to sailors competing in the Royal Yachting Association's On Board Festival today while officially opening Bembridge Royal National Lifeboat Institution's station as well.

Also on the royal's itinerary for her three-day visit to the island are stop-offs at a number of charity shops - including Save the Children in Ryde - and a meeting with representatives from Cowes Sailabilty.

Her journey will end tomorrow when she officially names Trinity Landing in Cowes and starts proceedings for the XOD Centenary Race at the Royal Yacht Squadron.
