During the visit, the Princess met Regular and Reserve soldiers from across the brigade to discuss the realities of working on the modern battlefield and into the cyber domain.

The brigade has deployed more than 900 soldiers across the UK and Germany to rehearse communications and command system support for the UK’s warfighting division.

Princess Anne has been busy on recent military engagements – in September she spent the weekend aboard HMS Albion as the ship took part in Exercise Joint Warrior.

Later in the month, she watched the reformation of 30 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton, inspecting personnel on the parade square.
