On March 1, 2012, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales was in Hounslow, England where he celebrated St. Day’s Day with the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards at the Cavalry Barracks. During today’s celebrations the heir to the British throne presented ceremonial leeks to the soldiers.
According to the Press Association:
The prince began his visit with a private meeting with former Welsh Guards in the officers’ mess before presenting long service medals to several soldiers.
Before spending half an hour mingling and sharing a drink with the soldiers, Charles presented an injured Afghanistan veteran with his medal for serving in Helmand province.
Afterward, the Prince of Wales along with various soldiers played Paintball. How fun. 🙂
