The Countess of Wessex was greeted upon her arrival in Tallinn on Tuesday by the children and employees of Pallipõnn Kindergarten.

She also met with Estonian scouts and guides at a mini scout camp held at the residence of British Ambassador Theresa Bubbear, where in the course of team games she spoke with members of a scout troop comprised of individuals with visual impairments about how to make youth camps for children with visual impairments even safer.
