The Princess Royal, Princess Anne, made a surprise visit to Carrickfergus on Wednesday to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Sea Cadets in Northern Ireland.

The event, which was moved indoors due to inclement weather conditions in the area, saw the royal give a speech marking the milestone.

Princess Anne is patron of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines charity and wore her official uniform during the visit.

DUP MLA Brian Kingston, who attended the event as honorary president of the Belfast Eagle Sea Cadets, said he was “delighted” to see the princess in Carrickfergus.

“I am delighted to see that the Princess Royal is celebrating the Sea Cadets’ birthday in Northern Ireland,” he told the Belfast Telegraph.

Mr Kingston, who had two children in the Sea Cadets when they were young and is now an officer in the organisation, said it was great to see the cadets in his honor because “he would have provided young people with great personal development work. are”.

“I am delighted to see the Sea Cadets receive this royal recognition, unfortunately the weather was not favourable,” he added, after heavy rain in Northern Ireland on Wednesday prevented a planned outdoor parade of cadets. Had to cancel.

Princess Anne’s visit to Antrim Town follows her nephew Prince William, Prince of Wales, who also attended Carrickfergus with his wife, Catherine, Princess of Wales, last month.

The couple, who still retain the titles of Baron and Lady Carrickfergus they held during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, stopped by Carrickfergus Castle on a day trip to Northern Ireland.

The visit hit the headlines after the Princess of Wales was told by a member of the public that “Ireland belongs to the Irish” in north Belfast.
