I moved posts regarding the opening of the Third National Assembly for Wales to British Royal Family current events thread, since apart from TRH, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were present as well.

Further information and pictures of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall's annual summer tour of Wales are to be posted here.

I enjoy hjow she seems to play with colours at her events: white and green are the colours in which the Black Prince, Edward of Woodstock, dressed his Welsh contingent at Crécy in 1346: these men were, as historian D.L. Evans remarked, 'the first troops to appear on a continental battlefield in national uniform.' Thus, by the middle of the fourteenth century, green and white appear to have been understood as the national colours of Wales; they were to be used later by Henry Tudor as the field for the Red Dragon, and they remain to this day the colours of the national flag, upon which the Red Dragon is set."

(Quote from: http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/gb-wa-hs.html)

Plus she wore the dress in which she became The Princess of Wales during this visit: does someone else here, too, thinks it has a significant meaning to her?

Thank you for the information Jo!
I didn't know the story of the Black Prince in connection of white and green. I didn't know about Henry Tudor and he field for the Red Dragon as well, it was very interesting to read.
Based on your knowledgable post and also the significance of the wedding dress / white and green oufit, I would guess the Duchess was honouring the Wales in a way.

I think green has always been her best color! Emerald green is her best color, no doubt.She also looks great in any shade of reds and pinks, but green is best.

And a picture from today:

Prince Charles attends a ceremony to celebrate 100 years since the laying of the University of Wales' foundation stone by Edward VII, in Bangor, Wales, Thursday June 7, 2007. The event at the university mirrored the original service held in 1907, and Charles donned university robes before taking part in a procession to where a plaque was to be unveiled to mark the occasion. The Prince is visiting the university on the third day of his annual tour of Wales. -------> Prince Charles

Nice Robes!

Charles looks very snazzy indeed. I often think university robes can be far too camp to be taken seriously.
