The Princess Royal will officially open sixteen new homes for the elderly in Newmarket today.

She will be given a private tour of the Rous Memorial Court before unveiling a plaque and giving a speech.

The court is named after Admiral Rous who came from Newmarket. His father owned a stud farm in Suffolk, which is where his passion for the sport developed.
