In Royal Visits, English fizz maker Ridgeview welcomed the Duchess of Cornwall for a tour of the East Sussex-based estate on Thursday while on an official pilgrimage to the county.

The Duchess said: “Can I say what a huge pleasure it is to be here today. Not just that it has brought me back to Sussex, brought me back to Ditchling, where I used to be at school … but one of my hugest pleasures is being President of Wines of GB.”

She was shown the progress at Ridgeview’s new £1.8m winery along with representatives from Trinder architects, Axio Builders and Clydesdale Bank who are involved in the project, alongside joint funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
