Britain’s Princess Anne remembers Falkland Islands’ liberation
Britain’s Princess Anne laid a wreath to remember the British recapture of the Falkland Islands.
The 65-year-old royal – who is the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip – was present at a special ceremony to celebrate the 1982 liberation of the islands.
The first event was held in the morning at the 1982 Liberation Monument whilst Reverend Kathy Biles conducted a service for the Princess Royal, representatives of the local community group and the public nearby.
The second event took place next to Stanley’s Christ Church Cathedral, where the Princess unveiled a marker for the Commonwealth Walkway.
The event was due to take place on Wednesday January 21 but it was brought forward due to poor weather predictions for the next week.
Meanwhile, despite enjoying a well-deserved Christmas break, the Princess Royal has been named the busiest member of the royal family in 2015.
Princess Anne was present at no less than 456 engagements across the United Kingdom between January and December as well nearly 90 events overseas, cementing her reputation as one of the hardest-working members of the royal family.
