The Countess of Wessex is in Cumbria today to carry out a series of royal engagements.

Sophie, the wife of Prince Edward, visited the Westmorland County Agricultural Society this morning.

She will go on to help celebrate the 50th birthday of the charity, Mencap, in Carlisle. Her last engagement will be just outside Penrith, to officially open a music therapy centre provided by The Sunbeams Music Trust.
