During day 2 of their visit to Guernsey, the Earl and Countess of Wessex spent time meeting and greeting the locals. They arrived to Sark by boat, and were taken to the top of the Harbour Hill where many residents and tourists eagerly awaited their arrival.

Franny Currie, a 14 year-old visitor from Oxford, had the chance to speak with Edward. “I was very excited. I’ve never met a member of the royal family before. I didn’t expect him to speak to me”, she told the Guernsey Press.

After their visit to Harbour Hill, the Earl and Countess of Wessex visited with year 6 pupils from St. Andrew’s School, who were practicing a camping exercise. Claire Corbet, a teacher at the school, told the Guernsey Press that, “We abandoned our orienteering exercise to come here and see them”. The Earl charmingly asked the group, “Did you lose anyone?”.

The Countess was given flowers by six year-old Eden Latter. She was also treated to a performance of “Romeo and Juliet” by 5 and 6 year-old children who acted out the play by using puppets and sets they constructed out of shoe boxes.
