Princess Anne came to Tower Bridge Road on Tuesday to visit the new Alex Monroe jewellery workshop next to The George pub.
The Princess made the visit as president of the UK Fashion & Textile Association and to mark the 30th anniversary of the Alex Monroe jewellery brand.
Monroe set up his first studio in South London in 1987. In 2012 he opened a shop in Snowsfields.
Alex Monroe has designed a range of jewellery – including a corgi pendant – on sale at the Buckingham Palace shop.
