THE crowds have descended and a Royal visit is set to be underway within half an hour to mark the 214th Westmorland County Show.
Traffic is queued for miles around while Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex is due to arrive by 11.30 for what will be the first visit of its kind in the show's history.
Jonathan Mason, chairman of the show, said: "I'm sure we've got plenty to see which will all be of interest to her.
"She definitely wants to see the cattle and sheep and has asked to see the WI tent and the food hall.
"I'm sure she'll have a great day."
Judging at the biggest event on the show season's calendar began at 8am in the Light Horse Section. The winners of all major categories will be announced with a grand parade and presentation at 3pm.
