PRINCESS Anne was served a lunch fit for royalty by Sheffield students when she opened a city organisation’s new headquarters.
The Princess Royal officially unveiled the new home of the Adsetts Partnership, on Bridge Street in the city centre, yesterday as part of a regional royal tour.
And catering students from Sheffield College were given a ‘nerve-wracking’ opportunity - to serve her lunch before the plaque was revealed.
Budding chef Walda Munyaburiza, of Gleadless, served the Queen’s daughter.
The 20-year-old said: “We set up everything she needed to eat, greeted her, curtsied and offered her coffee.
“She had a selection of the canapes, some fruit, strong black coffee and water.
“It was a really interesting experience, it was nerve wracking but an accomplishment that not everybody gets the chance to have - serving a Royal.”
Princess Anne also visited Chimo Holdings cutlery factory on Eyre Lane, which was chosen to manufacture the official sports themed teaspoons for the 2012 London Olympics, and Adwick Social Education Centre’s horticultural unit in Adwick Le Street, Doncaster.
