London: Kate, Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, travelled recently to the old home of Britain’s World War Two codebreakers - and where her own grandmother worked, visiting an exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

The historic site in Milton Keynes is where mathematician Alan Turing cracked Nazi Germany’s “unbreakable” Enigma code. “D-Day: Interception, Intelligence, Invasion”, held in the Teleprinter Building where codebreakers worked on intercepted messages, features an immersive film, shown on a giant curved screen, based on newly declassified information showing how Bletchley Park helped in the planning of the allied landings in France in June 1944.
