Prince Harry to Visit Suffolk

Prince Harry to Visit Suffolk


Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich

Thursday 20th July, 2017

Prince Harry will present a new Colour to the RAF Regiment on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen at RAF Honington on 20th July 2017. At the start of his visit, His Royal Highness will first present The Firmin Peace Sword of Peace to the RAF Police before meeting personnel from the RAF Police.

The Commandant General RAF Regiment, Air Commodore Frank Clifford, will accompany His Royal Highness as he presents the RAF Regiment with the Colour in the Regiment’s 75th Anniversary year. His Royal Highness will also give a short speech on receipt of the new Queen’s Colour.

Prince Harry will then have the opportunity to meet Service families and members of the local community before officially opening the Station Medical Centre. His Royal Highness will meet staff and patients at the Centre and receive a tour of the facilities.

Following his visit to RAF Honington, His Royal Highness will visit Ipswich to launch a new initiative from UK-wide brain injury charity Headway. The charity’s Brain Injury Identity Card will help the police identify brain injury survivors and ensure they are given appropriate support when they come into contact with the criminal justice system.

The card is supported by organisations across the UK including the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Police Scotland, the Police Service of Northern Ireland, the National Appropriate Adult Network and NHS England’s Liaison and Diversion Service.

During his visit, Prince Harry will meet with those involved in creating the Identity Card as well as brain injury survivors and hear their experiences of how the Brain Injury Identity Card has helped them when encountering difficulties with the criminal justice system.
