Colleagues and residents gathered outside Mill House in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, on Friday in the hope of a glimpse of seeing HRH The Princess Royal, who was visiting the neighbouring Robert Welch shop for their 60th Anniversary.
Resident Rachel Buxton, had the honour of giving The Princess Royal a bunch of tulips and even managed to have a few words and share a joke.
Home manager Kim Mulford said: “The Princess Royal was lovely, coming over to see us and take the flowers from Rachel, joking about how cold it was for us to be standing out. Rachel said that she was overwhelmed by the occasion as she has never been so close to a member of the royal family before.”
Mill House provides residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 45 residents who come for long-term care, trial stays, short stays and convalescent care.
