A Royal Visit: The Duke of Kent

In 2001 the Duke of Kent came to visit Wyedean. It was a great honour for the company to receive a Royal Visit, which was also attended by many local dignitaries. The Duke of Kent was given a tour around the factory by Managing Director, Robin Wright and was able to see many items in production such as waist sashes, which he himself has worn for events such as the Queen’s Birthday Parade. This special occasion was the first Royal Visits to Wyedean, and has recently followed by a visit from HRH Princess Anne in 2015.[
