Duchess of Cambridge visits Bletchley Park

June 21st, 2014

The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived at Bletchley Park, where her maternal grandmother, Valerie Glassborow, played a role in helping to decode German cypher systems.

She will meet with a codebreaker who worked with Valerie, who was employed as a civilian member of staff along with her twin sister Mary.

Kate’s tour of the park will mark the completion of a year-long restoration project, which has returned the buildings to their Second World War appearance and created new visitor facilities.

During her visit the Duchess will meet Second World War code-breaker veterans including Lady Marion, view the interactive exhibitions and demonstrations, and meet the design and management team and supporters who worked to deliver the project.

Before leaving Kate will be invited to plant a tree to commemorate the visit and the completed restoration.
