Princess Anne visited students at a Bromley college for people with learning disabilities yesterday.

The royal dropped in on some of the 78 young people at Nash College, in Croydon Road, which is the only residential specialist college in the London area.

The patron of disability charity Livability, which runs Nash College, attended a number of classes and exercise sessions during her visit.

College principal, Claire Howley-Mummery, said: “We were delighted to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to Nash College.

“It was a wonderful opportunity for student and staff to meet with her and for her to see at first-hand what the students can achieved when supported and challenged through a dynamic offer and by specialist staff.”
