Princess Anne is set to visit Shrewsbury carers service next week.

The 66-year-old royal - who is the daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip - is set to visit Carers Trust 4all at Sutton Farm on Tuesday (10.01.17) as part of her duty as the president of Carers Trust.

According to the Shropshire Star website, Anne is due to meet with the chair of the organisation, Michael James, as well as the chief executive Andrea Kinsey, whilst she is accompanied by the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire Sir Algernon Heber-Percy.

Anne is also set to meet with other trustees, commissioners and people who support the service by funding it, as well as the staff members who help to deliver the service, unpaid carers and those who rely on the organisation for career support and guidance.

And it has been reported to mark Anne's visit she will receive a gift, which is yet to be known, from a carer, she will sign the visitors' book and leave a message at her discretion, and most importantly, she will unveil a plaque at the site to mark her stopover.

Carers Trust 4all are "delighted" the brunette-haired royal will be spending some time with them and have admitted her trip will no doubt make its mark on all staff and volunteers associated to the organisation by giving them the "tremendous boost".

Andrea said: "We are delighted that Her Royal Highness is visiting us. It is a tremendous boost for unpaid carers, staff and volunteers. During her visit, the Princess will be able to meet many of the adults and young carers we work with and hear about their experiences and views on how unpaid carers should be supported in the future."

Anne is also set to meet with the Mayor of Shrewsbury, the Mayoress of Shrewsbury, Chief Executives of the Carers Trust as well as Councillor Ioan Jones.
