Excited staff then took the Princess Royal around various classrooms, before she was treated to a dance performance. She met with the students involved later in the day.

The Princess Royal regularly visited the girls’ school on speech days, and to attend official openings of new facilities.

The now-closed Felixstowe College was one of the country’s top independent schools, attended by daughters of the wealthy from home and abroad until it shut its doors in 1994.
