Elsewhere, a third added: ‘What a wonderful exchange. His words and Anne’s reaction,” while a fourth commented, “And look at the reaction of the woman assisting Ryder! Priceless!’

During the visit, the Royal Family met with charity volunteers and spoke to a number of people who had benefited from the horse riding courses.
Princess Anne, who protected her hair from the rain with an umbrella, wore a casual show for the occasion in a beige mac, tweed skirt and boots.
Princess Anne has been patroness of the charity since 1971 and became chairwoman in 1985.
Founded in 1959, the organization has so far provided therapy, fitness, skill development and achievement opportunities to more than 25,000 disabled children and adults through fun activities such as horseback riding and carriage rides.
These persons are supported by 18,000 great volunteers and qualified coaches in nearly 500 RDA centers across the UK.
