Countess of Wessex attending this year's Royal Cornwall Show
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The Countess of Wessex is set to be the guest of honour at the show, which takes place at its traditional showground near Wadebridge over three days from June 5th-7th.
The Countess will be attendance for the first two days of the show, enjoying in the exhibitions as well as being involved in presentations through her role as the president of the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Association (RCAA).
This will see the Countess making her first visit to the show, but not to the showground.
She first visited when she became president elect at the RCAA annual general meeting last year and opened the new Exhibition Hall.
RCAA secretary, Christopher Riddle said he was thrilled about the planned Royal visit.
He said: "We are delighted to welcome the Countess of Wessex on her first visit to the show with the added good news that she is able to attend for two days.
"The Countess informed us at the president's reception that she has a good track record in bringing fine weather to the shows she has attended in the past and a repeat of the glorious Cornish sunshine that bathed last year's show would be very welcome!"
Months of planning behind the scenes in preparation for the show will soon be a reality. Three show days teeming with things to see and do will attract an anticipated attendance of around 120,000 visitors. Livestock and equine entries will be joined by cattle, sheep and pig sections, with entries close to record levels for this year's show.
