Princess Anne has visited Northampton to open a new and important building for the Sikh community. The Princess opened 'Siri Guru Singh Sabha,' which will act as a Gurdwara (a Sikh congregational place of worship), community centre and youth club for Northampton's Sikh community.

The Princess Royal chatted to members of the Sikh community as she made the rounds on her visit.

As part of the trip, Princess Anne also met with Hot Food for the Homeless volunteers at the Gurdwara. These volunteers give their time to provide hot meals for rough sleepers. She then met with food bank volunteers, museum volunteers, and the Community Centre and Youth Club Management Committee.

The Princess Royal wore a stylish green trouser suit and placed a yellow scarf around her hair for the occasion. She also donned a face mask to keep in compliance with coronavirus regulations.

The previous week, she made trips to three Gloucestershire hospitals to thank NHS staff for their hard work throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
