A Royal Visit!

Princess Anne is in Cape Town to promote the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth. She arrived on monday, visited Soweto to meet with Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe on tuesday, and on wednesday she was here in Simon’s Town.

Well what a lovely suprise for our quaint little village! The lovely Princess visited us yesterday in Simon’s Town to lay a wreath in the cemetery and to visit the Navy. She received a very warm welcome by the South African Navy Band who played God Save the Queen before she chatted to some of the members. She also visited a local sailing school, Izivunguvungu, to meet their young sailers, many of them from disadvantages communities.

We hope she enjoyed her time here and expect that she’ll be back for some quality Simons Town R&R! Maybe even to stay with us here at The Grosvenor!
