HRH the Duke of York met dignitaries, business people, apprentices – and even pigeon lovers – during his visit to Milton Keynes on Wednesday.
Prince Andrew arrived in a helicopter from Windsor before travelling by car to Stonebridge-based company Niftylift.
He then visited Mercedes UK Apprentice training academy, followed by a trip to the De Vere Group in Newport Pagnell.
The final stop was Bletchley Park where HRH saw the enigma machine and learned about the role of pigeons in World War before unveiling a plaque for the new pigeon loft.
