Princess Anne went to North Hamilton yesterday, in what one community member said was probably the first time someone from the British Royal Family had visited the district.

The Princess Royal was there as part of the Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders Dialogue (CCELD).

As president of the two-week programme, the Princess arrived on the Island on Saturday evening, and yesterday oversaw briefings to (CCELD) Fellows on Financial Services at the offices of XL and a briefing on social issues, held at the Chewstick Foundation.

Executive Director of Chewstick Gavin Smith said Princess Anne watched over a discussion of rebuilding the community to help eliminate anti-social behaviour.

He said the Royal visit demonstrated the advancements made in the North Hamilton community.

“It was amazing,” he said. “It was great to have her at Chewstick and great to have her in the Back of Town area.

“I believe it is the first time a Royal has come to this part of Bermuda. It’s a great testament to how far North Hamilton has come.”

While on the Island, the Princess also met with Premier Paula Cox at Government House, and took part in a tree planting ceremony before departing on Sunday to meet with other groups of CCELD Fellows.

The Fellows of the CCELD are drawn from Government, Trade Unions and the private sector in Bermuda, the Caribbean and Canada, and were split up into study groups to tour the regions and learn more about social and economic issues. Later this month, the 120 fellows, including five Bermudians, will meet in Barbados with The Princess Royal, to discuss their findings.
