PRINCESS Anne took time out of her hectic royal schedule to drop by the Solihull Times’ headquarters at Fort Dunlop on May 26.
The Princess Royal made the special visit to formally open the new offices which moved to Fort Dunlop last year and, after a tour of the premises, unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion.
Birmingham Mail Local Hero Callum Batham, who saved his dad Lee’s life after a seizure, also presented Her Royal Highness with a posy.
Birmingham Mail Editor Steve Dyson said: “Our newspapers play a crucial part in this city, keeping readers up to date,fighting battles on their behalf and helping bind together our cosmopolitan population”.
Princess Anne received a copy of the Birmingham Mail with her picture on the front to mark her visit.
