HRH The Princess Royal Visits
HRH The Princess Royal visited New Zealand in February 2023 to mark the centenary of the New Zealand Army’s Royal New Zealand Corps of Signals. During her time in New Zealand, the Trust’s Acting Executive Director Francesca Eathorne, Chair Mark Stewart, Deputy Chair Anthony Wright and former Executive Director Nigel Watson were delighted to meet Her Royal Highness at an event hosted at Government House in Wellington.
In 2002 we were honoured to have HRH The Princess Royal launch the Trust’s Ross Sea Heritage Restoration Project in Antarctica, an international project to secure the historic explorer bases. The Princess Royal is a valued supporter of the Trust’s work to safeguard this legacy.
