Prince Andrew attends memorial service
Britain’s Prince Andrew attended a memorial service in Winchester yesterday (22.03.16).
The 56-year-old royal – the son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip – attended the ceremony in Winchester Cathedral, Hampshire, to remember Falklands War hero Admiral Sir Jeremy Black, who died in November aged 83.
Meanwhile, Andrew wasn’t the only one on a royal engagement yesterday, as his sister Princess Anne was also busy opening the UK’s first ever road safety centre.
The 65-year-old royal whizzed down to Weymouth yesterday morning to declare the safety unit Roadwise, based at Weymouth Fire Station, officially open for business.
The Princess was given a tour of the village as well as given a demonstration from Conifers Primary School pupils, before she unveiled a special stone and signed the visitors’ book.
RoadWise, which is part of the SafeWise charity, is a 3,000 square-metre road circuit with working pedestrian and zebra crossings, a mini roundabout, one way street, T-junctions, a yellow junction box and battery operated mini cars that will help children to learn about the risks involved on the roads.
However, it was a flying visit for Anne as she then had to dash off to three other engagements across the country.
