Princess Anne during her third day in the Falkland Islands was at Mount Pleasant Complex, where she was able to meet military staff from the different services and observe much of the equipment deployed to ensure the defense of the Islands and the security of the international airport, the air bridge linking with UK.

 Since on Saturday 19 November MPC was also open for Community Day, Princess Anne was able to meet some of the local residents who took the opportunity to visit the base and enjoy many of the amenities organized by the military.

The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral also met with former Zimbabwean de miners who helped clear the Islands of the thousands of mines left behind by the retreating Argentine forces in 1982.

The royal couple recognized the significant role played by the Zimbabwe experts in clearing minefields, during several summer seasons, until the Islands were finally declared free of this terrible weapon in November 2020, and many banned areas, after almost four decades, were again opened of locals to enjoy. Many of the deminers have since decided to make the Falklands their home,

Finally in the evening the Princess Royal attended a reception al Government House to meet members of the Falklands community

    Actually, young people are supposed to show respect to their elders.

    You, being a spoiled little b*tch from Argentina, a country where there is no such thing as character or backbone, would completely miss that.

    But dear Christina Kirchner, now that, is a class act. True royalty.

    Everybody in Argentina submits to and worships dear Christina. But that is perfectly normal, on account of how much Argentines admire corrupt politicians.

    There aren't many royal families left in the World.....I “Think” Saudi Arabia has one.

    Just look at the submissive expressions of the young royal subjects - how demeaning. And by the way, what on earth is the 'royal couple'? Have they even given a title to her huband?
