It is to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the arrival of the first Arctic Convoy (codenamed "Operation Dervish" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dervish_Convoy)

Princess Anne will attempt to soothe relations between Russia and Britain on Arctic Convoy visit

Thank you! And I just realized she is visiting Archangel! Nice research here on Operation Dervish's Commodore: Ahoy - Mac's Web Log - Captain J. C. K. Dowding Royal Naval Reserve

I rarely spot staff in these photos. I can see a translator here, but she sure makes it appear she travels to some of these locations without a detail or aids. Just Tim - and he makes a fine teammate, IMO.

It is great to see the brave British sailors' act of bravery being recognised by the UK government. If I remember correctly, the UK government insulted these people by denying the Ushakov medals from Russia.
