Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, has been presented with a white rose button hole on her visit to the Great Yorkshire Show.

Princess Anne arrived in Harrogate  for the event's 160th edition this morning.

She was welcomed by large crowds and met Show Director Charles Mills.

She was then greeted by 7-year-old Adele Zebrauskaite, who is a daughter of a Yorkshire Agricultural Society employee. Adele told Stray FM:

"I had to give her the white rose and then I curtsied after that. It was a bit scary!"

Adele's mum Erica added:

It was very exciting and we were very proud of her.

"It was very nice to meet Princess Anne, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity."

The Princess Royal was also due to view judging of some of the beef classes and speak with sculptor Emma Stothard about her creation 'the Craven Heifer'.

Mayor of Harrogate, Bernard Bateman, said:

"There's a phenomenal display from the military here and she's been talking to them.

"The Yorkshire Regiment has quite an area covered here and it's fantastic seeing so many people coming in once again.

"I think I've been coming for about 20 years and the number of people coming in today is absolutely amazing."
