Speedo President, David Robinson, said: "It was a great honour for us to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to Speedo House to officially open our new global headquarters. We are extremely proud of our new building, which is a modern and inspiring location where our staff will continue to thrive, allowing the business to grow and affirming our position as the world?s leading swimwear brand."
