Princess Anne carries out three visits in just one day despite record-breaking heatwave

Princess Royal attended one event in Wales and two in neighbouring Herefordshire yesterday. The 71-year-old, who was named as the hardest-working member of the Firm in 2021, made the trip while the Met Office put out red and amber heat warnings across Britain.

Thermometers hit 40.3C in Coningsby, Lincolnshire and 33 other locations saw mercury exceed the previous record set in 2019.

Wales endured its hottest day on record on Monday after the Met Office revealed Hawarden in Flintshire experienced temperatures of 37.1C.

Princess Anne ventured into Wales to visit the Royal Welsh Show.

Organisers told visitors: “Make sure you take some time in the shade in this hot weather and drink plenty of water – fill your water bottles at our refill stations.”

Princess Anne was spotted at the agriculture event meeting bearskin-wearing Welsh Guards.

She also joked about joining Dragons RFC, a pro-rugby side based in Newport, as players count down to the new season.

Anne said: “You’re not looking for players, are you?”

Dragons RFC shared the encounter and claimed Anne had offered her availability.
