SARAH, Duchess of York, popped into Enborne Primary School on Tuesday to bid farewell to the retiring headteacher, Linda Fowler, and officially open a new play area.
The former Royal, who now works for children's charities across the world, visited the village school after an invitation from the chairman of governors, John Tyzack.
The Duchess, who was previously married to Prince Andrew and is the mother of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, visited the school last July to open the school's new extension and took away stories that the pupils had written.
During this visit, after telling pupils what she thought of their essays, she gave out some prizes for the best and also told pupils about a book she had written since her last visit.
She said: “They wrote great stories and there was lots of good imagination.
“The children have really poured their hearts out.
“I have had the most wonderful day at Enborne School as usual.
“It is a huge atmosphere of fun and jollity but a really good example of good education.”
