The 66-year-old royal - who serves as the President of Riding for the Disabled Association - watched a number of driving displays and met a number of drivers and volunteers at the specially-organised event.

What's more, she also presented them with rosettes to mark their achievements with the group.

The Royal Family's official Twitter account explained: "[email protected] is a charity that provides opportunities for disabled adults & children to ride, carriage drive, vault and showjump. (sic)"

During her trip, the British royal also visited the planning offices of Lendy Cowes Week, the world's oldest and largest sailing regatta of its kind.

Princess Anne even started the racing on day four of the regatta.

The Royal Twitter page said: "[email protected]_week is the world's oldest and largest sailing regatta that brings together over 8,500 competitors and 100,000 spectators. (sic)"

Last month, Princess Anne celebrated the 100th anniversary of the RAF's 101 Squadron.

The royal visited RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, England, to commend the work of the group known as the "most famous unknown squadron" in the UK's Royal Air force.

She said: "It's extraordinary to be able to celebrate this centenary on the same day this squadron was formed in July 1917 - another squadron older than the RAF to celebrate its formation.

"It is appropriate on this day we shall remember what the squadron's history contains - or some of what it contains, otherwise we could be here for some time."
