Princess Royal has accepted an invitation to become
Patron of the Royal Three Counties Show.
Only last year, the Show
was granted a prestigious Royal title – further
endorsing its place as one of Britain’s top
Organiser, the Three
Counties Agricultural Society, said it was thrilled with
news of the patronage, which would help to strengthen
the Royal connection, and give additional credence to
its work to promote food, farming and rural enterprise.
Said Chief Executive, Ken
Nottage: “We are naturally delighted that Her Royal
Highness has agreed to be Patron of our Show. As a
resident of Gloucestershire, she has a strong personal
connection with one of the counties our organisation
represents, and has always been supportive of events
A Royal patronage adds weight to our efforts to make the Royal Three Counties the very best it can be, and I am sure that Her Royal Highness’s presence at Shows will be a source of delight for all the exhibitors, competitors, traders, visitors, staff and volunteers, who play a part in staging the event each year.”
HRH The Princess Royal is very familiar with the Three Counties Showground, having first visited in 1976, and served as the Society’s President in 1981.
In 1986, she was in Malvern again to open the new Members’ Complex overlooking the Main Arena, and in 2006, she attended the National Pony Society’s 100th Summer Championship Show and the National Sheep Association Show.
