Princess Anne continues a two-day visit of Northern Ireland this afternoon.
Her Royal Highness spent time at Hillsborough Castle yesterday, at the Secretary of State's garden party.
One of the guests she met there was Norman Surplus from Larne.
He became the first man to fly an auto-gyro aircraft across the world, after having been given 18 months to live from a bowel cancer diagnosis 10 years ago.
He told Q Radio he wants to send a strong message to cancer sufferers.
