Yesterday, The Duke & Duchess of Sussex had their first visit to Sussex. They began their visit at Edes House in Chichester where they view the copy of the American Declaration of Independance and signed the guest book.
Next, they officially opened the new Engineering and Digital Technology Park at Chichester University in Bognor Regis. Our royal couple met students, joined an animation workshop and listened to students of the University Chamber orchestra rehearsing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
In the afternoon, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex greeted hundreds of royal well-wishers and spoke to children from Queen’s Park School at the Royal Pavillion in Brighton. Inside the Pavilion, they view the Banqueting Room. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.
At Survivors’ Network, an organisation which supports people who have experienced sexual violence and abuse in Brighton, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex met a group of women. The Knitwork project of this charity brings together survivors of sexual violence and abuse.
Meghan and Harry wrapped up their visit at the JOFF Youth Centre in Peacehaven. This center hosts activities and events for young people in the area.
