Princess Anne meets charity shop volunteers

The Princess Royal took the opportunity to meet charity shop volunteers when she visited Windsor last week.

The Queen's daughter was in town to take the salute as the Household Cavalry marched past the Guildhall on Wednesday.

But she also found the time to visit the Save the Children charity shop in William Street - and 30 volunteers, past and present turned up to greet her.

Christine Heybourn, treasurer and joint team leader at the shop, said: "She stayed over an hour and saw all over the shop, chatting to everybody.

"It was her third time here. The shop is 21 years old now. Anne's first visit was to open it, her second to help it celebrate after 10 years.

"She is UK president of the charity. It was one of the first she took on and she really knows about it."
