Princess Anne walked down to the harbour along the famous cobbled street in Clovelly: a test for many due to its steepness and uneven surface.
Princess Anne is a keen horsewoman and took great interest in the village donkeys that had transported goods up and down the steep sloped village for centuries. They are no longer working animals and are now used as a tourist attraction.
Princess Anne will be in North Devon today. The Princess Royal will be in Clovelly to open a fountain in honour of the Queen. She'll also unveil a plaque in remembrance of mariners who lost their lives near the town in the 19th century.
This afternoon she'll move on to Barnstaple to open a new play park.
The re-arranged point-to-point meeting at Black Forest Lodge in Kenton is happening today [Saturday]. The original meet should have been on January 13th. Princess Anne is said to have entered a horse called First Watch, which is trained by her daughter Zara Phillips. The first race starts at noon.
