Princess Anne arrives in Sydney ahead of royal tours in Australia and Papua New Guinea | Royal | News

Bestinau got that-

The Princess Royal, accompanied by her husband Sir Tim Laurence, will arrive in Sydney on Saturday for a working visit for a three-day whirlwind tour and will visit Papua New Guinea from Monday, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

The princess will attend many events during her short visit to Australia and will then visit the independent state of Papua New Guinea for a three-day tour.

While in Australia, Princess Anne will attend the opening ceremony of the bicentennial Sydney Royal Easter Show, as well as visit the Rural Fire Service and Sea Heritage Foundation, among other royal engagements.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show made a comeback last year after the 2020 event was canceled due to the pandemic.

Last year, as many as 800,000 people attended the event over the course of its tenure, breaking five attendance records since it moved to Sydney Olympic Park in 1998.

The Queen is the only reigning monarch to have attended the show in the past.

The princess, who is the patron of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, will also attend a patronage dinner at the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron and attend a garden.

Her latest engagement in South New Wales will be a visit as Commander in Chief of the Royal Australian Corps of Signals and the Royal Australian Corps of Transport.

The colonel-in-chief of a regiment is usually a royal patron, who plays a ceremonial role in the life of the regiment and is kept informed of all the important activities of the regiment and makes an occasional visit to his units.

The Princess Royal will also open a Women’s Resource Center in Vabukori Village and meet with elders and community leaders in Hanuabada Village.

To conclude her tour on April 13, Princess Anne will visit the Bomana War Cemetary, which is home to 3,824 Commonwealth soldiers from World War II.

She will then stop at the Island Country Adventure Park, eventually concluding her visit to the National Museum and Art Gallery.

The tour was confirmed in February while the Queen was recovering from Covid.

At the time, the event’s organizers confirmed in a statement that Anne would “come to Australia specifically in her role as patroness of the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.”
