Princess Anne cancels visit to Suffolk Punch Trust, in Hollesley, near Woodbridge





Princess Anne has cancelled her planned visit to the Suffolk countryside today.

The Princess Royal was due to stop off at The Suffolk Punch Trust, in Hollesley, near Woodbridge, in a nod to her equine roots.

However, that visit has now been shelved, with it to be rearranged for a later date.

Princess Anne had previously donated to the trust in 2006 to help it raise money to buy its Colony Stud and Farm.

She has a long history in equestrianism, winning the individual eventing title at the European Eventing Championship in 1971 and competing at the 1976 Olympic Games at Montreal.

The Princess Royal last visited the county in March, opening the combined fire and police station in Princes Street, Ipswich, as well stopping off at Southwold to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Adnams.

It is not yet known when The Princess Royal’s visit will be rescheduled for.
