Anne keeps Wigtown guessing over cup ceremony

WIGTOWN Show organisers are still not sure whether or not Princess Anne will be presenting the Craig Cup to the Show Champion on Wednesday due to her tight schedule that day.

A show spokesman said that the exact arrival and departure times of HRH the Princess Royal was not available due to the strict security arrangements that surround members of the Royal Family but they were still keeping their fingers crossed that she would be able to present the Champion of Champions Cup before she left Bladnoch Park to attend Arran Show the same afternoon.

The Wigtown Agricultural Society released a statement earlier this week encouraging people to come to the show “before lunchtime” if they wanted to see the Princess.

Wigtown Agricultural Society is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year.
