Princess Anne visits Cambridgeshire

HRH Princess Anne visited Cambridge on Monday 16th April 2018.

Her first engagement was to officially open the Woolf Institute, a Cambridge University research centre dedicated to fostering relations between religions.  The £9m centre is the climax of a 20-year vision by its founders Lord Woolf and the Institute’s director Dr Ed Kessler.  Both were on hand to receive the Princess Royal, who also met students and researchers during a tour of the building.  The building was short-listed for the Cambridge Design and Construction Award and has been entirely paid for by charitable donations across the three Abrahamic faiths.

In the afternoon, The Princess Royal visited Denny Abbey Farmland Museum in Waterbeach, which celebrated the 21st anniversary of its partnership with English Heritage. She toured the grounds, unveiled a plaque to mark her visit and the anniversary, and met representatives from both organisations as well as museum supporters and volunteers.
