Prince William’s Visit to Lincolnshire
Monday was a busy day for Prince William. He was in Lincolnshire for a total of three visits – one to a hospital, another to a school, and then finally the Royal Air Force in Coningsby.
In the morning, William went to St. Barnabas Hospice with his aunt, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, elder sister to the late Princess Diana and who is the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire. The Prince spent over a hour talking to patients, staff members and volunteers a the Hospice. He even stopped by its art class to meet with more patients, who are suffering from terminal illnesses.
Next, Prince William – this time without his aunt – went to Eresby School to open its Life Skills Centre. Eresby is an institution for children with learning disabilities. It is also the first school in the UK to earn specialist school status in Cognition and Learning.
During his visit, William unveiled a plaque to commemorate his visit. He also met with staff members, the students and their parents. One boy, named Darren Pearty, sat in his lap and gave the future King a big hug.
In the evening, the Prince went to the Royal Air Force base in the area as Honorary Air Commandant.Filed under British Royals
