Arbroath and Carnoustie are gearing up to welcome Her Royal Highness, the Princess Royal who will be visiting the area on Tuesday (October 16).
While in Arbroath, the princess will visit Mackays jam factory on the Kirkton Industrial Estate.
The business has enjoyed notable success this year, including striking a deal with supermarket giant Tesco to double the value of its sales to the retailer.
It also marks a year of royal recognition for Mackays who were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the international trade category in January.
On her engagement in Carnoustie, Princess Anne will be at the War Memorial to unveil two plaques honouring the town’s two First World War Victoria Cross winners.
The bronze plaques, which honour Petty Officer George Samson and Corporal Charles Jarvis are to be rededicated at the Memorial.
They were previously set in walls at Samson Place and Jarvis Place in Carnoustie and were sent off to be cleaned two years ago.
The ceremony is being organised by the Carnoustie branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland and Legion padre Canon Douglas McKay will perform the rededication.
In addition Princess Anne will also be visiting Guthrie Castle on Tuesday to attend an autumn fayre which is raising funds for the Save the Children charity.
Her Royal Highness is president of Save the Children, and will be met by the chairman of the Angus branch, the Countess of Southesk who will introduce her to members of the committee.
Also planned for the Princess’s tour of Angus is a reception at the Canmore Rooms in Forfar to honour the Angus branch of Victim Support Scotland.
She will also carry out another engagement in Kirriemuir.
