Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal will visit Dubai, the United Arab Emirates on Friday, 1st March as President of the Mission to Seafarers (MtS).

On arrival in Dubai, Her Royal Highness will visit DP World’s Jebel Ali Port, the busiest port in the Middle East. Here, Her Royal Highness will hear more about the innovative technology being used at the port which includes electrified and automated high bay storage stacker cranes. The Princess Royal will also view a demonstration of container transfer from ship to shore before meeting the port’s operations team, frontline workers and the MtS welfare team.

Following this, the Princess Royal will attend a Women in Shipping and Trading Conference Panel Discussion to hear more about the importance of seafarers’ welfare with an emphasis on women in shipping and trade. Her Royal Highness will end the day in Dubai with a dinner hosted by representatives from MtS.

During the visit, Her Royal Highness will also open the new Donnelly Lines facilities at Al-Minhad Air Base.

The new HQ, welfare and accommodation facilities are named after Sergeant William ‘Billy’ Donnelly, an RAF navigator who died in UAE on 14th February 1943 after his aircraft suffered an oil leak. The facilities will support British service personnel at the airbase.

As President of the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), the Princess Royal will tour Dubai Offshore Sailing Club, the region’s largest RYA training centre, and meet dedicated volunteers who have promoted sailing and other competitive non-motorised water sports to communities in the United Arab Emirates since the club was established in 1974.
