Royal couple met with students from Trinity College and the Girls' High School Kandy. The Earl and Countess spent time with students from Trinity College Kandy and the Girls' High School and heard from them about their aspirations for the future and why they believed English language education would equip them for the challenges of working in an increasingly connected world. They also enjoyed lunch with student representatives and members of local Guides and Scouts groups.

They also visited the Royal Botanical Gardens. They planted a tree to commemorate formally Sri Lanka's 70th Anniversary of Independence and they unveiled a plaque to celebrate the long-standing relationship between the Royal Botanical Gardens and Britain. Queen Elizabeth visited the Gardens in 1954, and buildings within the Gardens which were used by Lord Mountbatten as his headquarters during WWII.
