Countess of Wessex visit
The Countess of Wessex visited the newly renovated Chapel at Royal Victoria Country Park to mark its formal opening. Her visit follows a sensitive £35m project to conserve the chapel for future generations funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Hampshire County Council.
The Countess took a tour of the chapel before signing a scroll which was placed in a time capsule containing recovered and conserved plans to be buried under the original foundation stones of the hospital. The Countess unveiled a plaque which was placed on the original hospital foundation stone.
