Britain's Princess Anne visited business leaders on a trip to Surrey.
The 65-year-old royal met with an 18-year-old entrepreneur during her visit, who had been working in a nearby market since he was ten-years-old and now has his own shop at Redhill's Belfry Shopping Centre.
Danesh Amin said: "I am thrilled that HRH The Princess Royal visited the Brocks Chocs production site.
"This visit in 2016 comes during my biggest growth year - both professionally and personally, as I embark upon opening new stores, creating further employment locally and furthering my education at university. I am very excited about what the future holds for Brocks Chocs."
She also visited Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking as well as Dennys Brands in Leatherhead.
Nick Jubert, managing director of Dennys Brands, added to the Dorking and Leatherhead Advertiser: "We were delighted and honoured to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to Leatherhead, both to mark our employees' commitment to the business, and to celebrate our continued success as we prepare for the opening of our flagship store in London's West End."
Whilst visiting the uniform supplier, she handed long-service awards to six employees who had been working at the firm for more than 20 years.
