The police commander overseeing today’s (Thursday 3 November 2022) royal visit in Scarborough described it as a “privilege” for North Yorkshire Police to be involved in the occasion.
The Prince and Princess of Wales attended two venues in the town, The Street and The Rainbow Centre, to pledge £345,000 of funding to support young people’s mental health and wellbeing services.
They also got see first-hand how community organisations are rallying to help those who are struggling with the rising cost of living.
This is a collaboration between The Royal Foundation of The Prince and Princess of Wales and the Two Ridings Community Foundation.
A well-planned security operation was carried out to ensure the safety of the Prince and Princess throughout their time in Scarborough.
No issues or incidents have been reported.
Superintendent Fiona Willey, North Yorkshire Police’s silver commander for the royal visit, said:
“This has been a very special occasion for Scarborough, not least for the many people involved in local mental health, wellbeing and community services who have received this vital funding.
“It is a privilege for North Yorshire Police to play our part and we are delighted that The Prince and Princess of Wales enjoyed their very worthwhile visit to Scarborough.
“I thank my colleagues and our partner agencies for the outstanding effort to ensure safety and security throughout the royal visit.”
