Duchess of Cambridge makes a royal trip to Wiltshire to support charity

Posted on 16th December 2015

Wiltshire welcomes royal company, as the Duchess of Cambridge travels there on her first official trip to the area.

The Duchess of Cambridge was able to take in the regal views of the South West county earlier this month. Unfortunately, she wasn’t there for a Wiltshire holiday, rather the Duchess was in the area fulfilling her royal duties.

The Duchess was in Wiltshire last week, making a visit to a Warminster charity that helps retrain people overcoming addiction.

As a patron of Action on Addiction she visited the charity’s Centre for Addiction Treatment Studies in Warminster. She was able to see first-hand the important role that the centre plays in training counsellors who will go on to help those battling addiction.

This is not the first time a Duchess has come to Wiltshire. Back in February, the Duchess of Cornwall visited the glove makers Dents Fine Accessories, again in Warminster, to tour the factory and learn about the company’s 238-year history.

Wiltshire may not be home to Buckingham Palace, but many of its holiday cottages are sure to meet the royal standard. As this recent trip shows, the county of Wiltshire is fit for a Queen, or a Duchess.
