Wishing HRH The Princess Royal a happy 70th birthday

We wish Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal a very happy 70th birthday. Her Royal Highness has been our Commandant-in-Chief since 1981. She has enthusiastically supported the Corps, attending many events and meeting Corps members and supporters. We are grateful for her time and encouragement, and proud to carry her name as the Princess Royal’s Volunteer Corps.

Look through the picture gallery to see Her Royal Highness attending various FANY events over the years, and her first letter in the Corps Gazette.
