Coronation Street was yesterday visited by HRH The Princess Royal, alongside 50 senior and diverse leaders from businesses, Governments and NGOs across the Commonwealth.
The visit to the site was part of a wider CSC Leaders ‘Common Purpose’ visit to the UK.
Robbie Sandison, Head of Production for Coronation Street, said: “It was a delight to welcome Her Royal Highness and leaders from across the Commonwealth to the cobbles. Coronation Street has worked together across various industries in the Greater Manchester community for over 50 years and together with ITV we’re very proud of our place in the region’s history."
