A Day In Oxford For Charles and Camilla
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were in Oxford today for a day of engagements.
Beginning at the famous Covered Market, Charles and Camilla visited a number of the businesses that sell products in the market including greengrocer and Brown’s Cafe for lunch and coffee. The couple also stopped in at The Cake Shop, where they spoke with staff and admired the cakes on display.
Prince Charles then went on to the new building of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, of which he is patron, for the official opening. The Prince was given a tour of the new facility, and spoke at the ceremony.
“We need to rediscover and explore what unites rather than what divides us and that involves a recognition that we have all learned from each other and should continue to do so. No one culture contains the complete truth. We are all seekers. And our search is – or should be – a collective human enterprise,” the Prince said.
