Annals of Stating The Obvious

The Globe and Mail reports that Princess Anne is visiting Kingston, Ontario in her position as:

Colonel-in-Chief of the Canadian Forces Communications and Electronics Branch, the group of 2,000 troops responsible for setting up phone lines, Internet and wireless communication.

Lest we readers mistakenly think that this position actually involves actual setting up of actual phone, Internet and wireless communications, the story continues:

The princess’s position is ceremonial.

Later in the story we get to hear the Princess’ thoughts on the importance of military communications:

“One of the things people forget — in peace as well as in war — is that communications stay the same,” she said. “It’s something that has to be continually practiced.”
