Shortly after arrival, Her Royal Highness proceeded to sign on the Royal Parchment and later on presented with a photo album.
The gathering reception was aimed to express invaluable appreciation to Her Royal Highness for her concern and support as the Commandant of Women Police which serves as a role model and inspiration to members of the force in further advancing their career and practise the spirit of healthy competition and high professionalism.
