Since Kate Middleton and Prince Phillip tied the knot The Hour’s royal correspondent Rosa Zambonini has found herself at a bit of a loose end. So when she heard that the Royal Highland Show was about to kick off, she couldn’t wait to see what it was all about.
She said: “As a glamorous, sophisticated and demure kind of woman, I find myself in a rather unusual predicament. I’m in a field surrounded by animals!
“It’s the Royal Highland Show and as I love all things royal I’ve decided to come along and find out if a city girl really can have fun in the countryside.”
Among the attractions were the Shetland sheep, whose wool is spun in a loom then knitted into a jumper. Although she wasn’t that keen on making a jumper, she was more than happy to try one on.
As well as the animals, she also tried axe throwing and found herself a brand new hat.
Elsewhere at the show she saw duck herding, but only the most intelligent and obedient dogs can master this skill. With plenty of enthusiasm, Rosa herself was willing to give it a go but found that it wasn’t as easy as the dogs made it look.
Relaxing in a hot tub with a glass of champagne later on, Rosa added: “I’ve had an amazing day at the Royal Highland Show ground. I’ve learned a lot and tried my hand at new things, but I’m glad that even in the great outdoors a girl can find a little bit of luxury.”
