It was the fifth year that the Duchess hosted the lights team and major sponsors for drinks at the castle.

Lights-committee chairman Gordon Castle said: “Without the Duchess’s influence and personal involvement the committee would struggle financially. The lights, thanks to the year-round hard work of local volunteers, brings the whole town of Alnwick together at Christmas.”
