Pioneering is part of who we are. That’s why each Ryman village is named after a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer, Princess Alexandra, Yvette Williams, Bob Scott to name a few. They lived with passion and purpose, they pushed further, they went beyond the ordinary. That’s exactly what we strive to do, every day, at Ryman. To pioneer a new way of living, for a new retirement generation.
Princess Alexandra was born on Christmas Day in 1936. She is the second child and only daughter of the late Duke and Duchess of Kent.
Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra celebrated the opening of the original hospital by attending the Jaycee Charity Ball in Napier, April 1971.
Princess Alexandra is actively involved in many charity organisations such as the Alzheimer’s Society and the Blind Association.
