The invitation only preview, beginning at 6pm, will include both a speech by the princess and a series of ‘walk through’ talks about different aspects of the North Mymms collection given by Sworders’ staff. There will a book signing of A Cheetah’s Tale, HRH’s recent wildlife autobiography discussing her childhood in Mozambique.
