Prince Edward also helped prepare some Union Jack bunting ready for next week’s celebrations.

He took part in the activities at the Isle of Wight’s Independent Arts charity who help to improve wellbeing, quality of life and to reduce social isolation for people through the use of art.

While on the shores, the Queen’s youngest son and his wife plan to carry out a number of engagements including visiting Pan Estate in Newport, to see the work done by the Community Centre and Barnado’s Family Centre.

The visit to the school in the lead-up to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is helping the couple see the work being done with young people on the Isle of Wight.

Later in the day, they are expected to visit a sheltered housing at Columbus House to join in with their preparations for next week’s commemorative events.

HM Lord-Lieutenant, Mrs Susie Sheldon, said: “We are delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses back to the Isle of Wight.

“Their support of so many different aspects of our community is much appreciated.”

Graham Biss, chairman of the Royal Isle of Wight County Show, said: “We are very excited to be welcoming The Earl and Countess to our Education Day at the County Showground.

“Her Royal Highness is patron of The Association of Show and Agricultural Organisation, and with our County Show newly expanded to two days this summer, we are keen to showcase the charitable work we do for young people through education, and bursaries and scholarships.”
