Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal arrived in Regina Friday afternoon, for a low-key weekend visit to the city.

A beautiful person."

The Queen's only daughter, ninth in line for the throne, is Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Regina Rifles, which this weekend is celebrating its centenary. Her last visit to the Royal Regina Rifles was in 2004, to commemorate the role played by the regiment sixty years previously during the D-Day landings.

While in Regina, The Princess Royal is also expected to receive the Freedom of the city at a public ceremony at City Hall.
