On the first day of The Open meeting at Cheltenham Racecourse, Princess Anne has opened its new, 5 and a half storey grandstand.
The Princess Royal Grandstand is the final part of a £45 million redevelopment of the course spanning 19 months.
Today is the start of one of Cheltenham Racecourse's most popular meets, The Open, Countryside Day. - with thousands expected to flock to the event.
The new grandstand bears the name of Her Highness, The Princess Royal, who said that she was "really touched that you should have asked me to lend my name to this stand."
Around 70,000 people are expected to go through the gates at Prestbury Park over the three days.
Robert Waley-Cohen, Chairman of Cheltenham Racecourse had the honour of introducing Princess Anne just before she opened the new Cheltenham grandstand named in her honour.
The new opening has been honoured not just with the Her Highness' name, but a giant cake has also been constructed to represent the new grandstand:
The Princess is one of two Royals visiting the West Country today, as The Duke of Edinburgh is in Plymouth visiting marines this afternoon.
