Prince Charles to visit Wales next month
Britain’s Prince Charles is set to visit Wales next month.
The 67-year-old royal – the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth – will pay a visit to the country with his wife Duchess Camilla, whom he married in 2005, from July 4 until July 10.
A spokesperson for Clarence House told Wales Online: “The Prince and The Duchess are looking forward to meeting local people in cities, towns and villages across Wales, and to celebrate the best of the country’s past and present, as they undertake a busy week of engagements.”
The couple will kick off their trip of engagements by paying a visit to Swansea University in order to open the new Bay Campus – a project supported by the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community – before making their way to Bangor University to meet with students and officially declare the new School of Ocean Sciences open for business.
However, their trip isn’t just limited to schools and universities as the pair will also celebrate entrepreneurs in the country’s food sector by visiting South Caernarfon Creamery and Abergavenny Fine Foods, which was built following a devastating fire at the firm’s old factory in 2015.
The prince will also meet with those taking part in the Llandovery Motorbike Festival before starting the event.
Their trip may only be a week-long but the royals are certainly busy as they will also stop by Pontypridd Lido to celebrate famed author Roald Dahl and visit the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue team’s Merthyr Tydfil base.
The couple will also spend a large proportion of their time working with charities and praising their hard work.
