She attended a tea reception organised by the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust, for members of the Antarctic 100 (A100), a group of organisations which is chaired by the trust.

The A100 is a network of UK organisations with a connection to the polar regions which meets annually in support of each other’s work. It was set up to act as an information exchange for organisations  that were organising events around the Centenary of Scott's death.

HRH The Princess Royal, patron of the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust  attended part of the A100 meeting and heard an address by Julian Dowdeswell about the affects of climate change on polar regions which are proving more susceptible to temperature increase than more temperate regions.

She was also given a tour of the Institute’s Polar Museum which was visited by her father, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, on several occasions when he was Chancellor of Cambridge University.
