A HAMPSHIRE village has today welcomed a royal visitor for the first time in more than 150 years.
She is the first royal visitor to the village since 1858 when two of Queen Victoria's children - Prince Edward, and his younger brother, Prince Arthur, visited the church.
The Countess will visit a venue in The Square this afternoon where breast cancer support centre The Haven in Wessex will be created.
She will look around the Grade II building which is to undergo a refurbishment before opening as a fully functioning Haven in the first part of 2015.
The Haven in Wessex will provide support for 3,000 breast cancer patients.
