The red carpet was rolled out throughout Suffolk as the Princess Royal visited organisations in the county as part of a whistlestop tour.
Princess Anne made stops in Newmarket, Stowmarket and Martlesham where she delivered the royal seal of approval to a range of new facilities.
In Stowmarket, Princess Anne was taken on a tour of rehabilitation centre Livability Icanho, which specialises in the recovery of those who have suffered brain injuries.
The organisation’s new equipment, including a Vector body weight support system, was demonstrated by patients at Livability for the Princess Royal.
Dr Rosemary Gravell, service manager, said: “We’re particularly pleased Princess Anne came to raise awareness of the impact of acquired brain injuries.
“She was able to celebrate the excellent rehabilitation services we have here, and help us to launch our new equipment.”
Lisa Hemsley, assistant director of fundraising at Livability, added: “We’re super honoured that Princess Anne has visited as she is a great supporter of our charity.
“Princess Anne coming to Icanho shines a light on it as a specialist centre for brain injuries in Suffolk.”
