Traffic is flowing reasonable freely this morning on routes surrounding Trinity Park.

The area around Purdis Farm was free flowing as the gates opened first thing, although traffic is expected to build as the morning goes on.

With no further rain, the ground is holding up well on site.

Drivers are advised to take care as they enter the car parks as some of the main routes are slippery but once inside the main showground, the grass is fairly dry.
Prince Harry is due to arrive around midday and will spend several hours at the show.
