Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall Visit Brecon.

On Tuesday, July 10, 2012, Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Brecon. Per the official website for the Prince of Wales:

The historic Mid Wales town is the first stop for the Prince and the Duchess on the second day of their annual summer visit to the principality.

As the couple arrived to attend a Thanksgiving Service at the Brecon Cathedral, pupils from the nearby Priory School gave them an enthusiastic welcome and The Duchess accepted a bouquet.

Once the Prince and the Duchess were inside, the Thanksgiving Service got under way marking the successful conclusion of a decade of fundraising for the cathedral choir, hitting the £1 million mark.

The Royal couple then visited the Brecon Small Picture Show held in a small annex off the cathedral’s main hall.

The Prince and the Duchess then separated and carried out individual visits of their own.

The Duchess visited Ysgol Penmaes, a school for children with severe learning difficulties. The Duchess also visited Golwg y Camlas, a respite unit run by social services adjacent to the school.

Later, the Duchess met a number of parents and governors at the school and was entertained by a choir of pupils who sang Bread of Heaven and Delilah.  Before leaving she unveiled the school’s specially commissioned new jubilee stained glass window.

She then met local people and volunteers connected with the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal, which is celebrating its 200th anniversary.
