Princess Royal will travel to Paris for a two-day visit in October, Buckingham Palace has announced.

Ahead of the Tokyo Olympics earlier this summer, Anne sent a touching message of support to Team GB, saying: “As your President, I would like to wish you every success for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Although I am sad not to be there in person, I and the whole nation will be cheering for you and proudly supporting you from home.”
