The Royal Visit

A VVIP came to visit Rothera this week - HRH the Princess Royal. It's the first time a member of the royal family has visited this side of Antarctica. HRH came to see the Bonner Lab where we work and talked to all of us about our science work. We had a special dinner with HRH as well. She got a mountain range on our island named after her to mark her visit. Here the Princess is learning how to drive the ski-doos and below is a photo of our SCUBA diving demonstration in action.
