Prince William Marks his Birthday with Official visit to Wales

19 JUNE 2003
Prince William received a rapturous reception when he arrived in Wales on Thursday for an official visit to mark his birthday.

The future king, who turns 21 on June 21, was met with a loud rendition of "Happy Birthday", in both Welsh and English, when he stepped off the train in the northern town of Bangor.

Local people were additionally pleased after hearing it was Wills's own idea to make the trip. The young royal, who will one day become the Prince of Wales, was accompanied by his father, Prince Charles. He visited a food fair on the island of Anglesea, before moving on to a shelter for homeless people in Newport.

It has been rumoured that when he finishes college, Prince William may spend some time at a Welsh university to learn the language. His father spent six months at the University of Wales in Aberystwyth in the 1960s doing the same.

For the moment, William will be staying at St Andrews University in Scotland, however, where he is halfway through a history of art degree.

WILLS' CHERRY BRANDY QUIP

Prince William knocked back liqueurs and joked that photographers were trying to get him drunk.


Tasting three glasses of two different liqueurs, the student prince, who is 21 on Saturday, raised a laugh.

He joked: "Are you trying to get me p****d?"

And William, who was at a Welsh Food Fair in Anglesey with the Prince of Wales, pulled his father's leg about underage drinking.

"Look Pops, they've got cherry brandy," William said with a hint of mischief in his voice.

An amused Prince of Wales raised his eyebrows and replied: "Don't believe everything they tell you."

William had evidently been told the story of when his father was a schoolboy and ordered a glass of cherry brandy in a pub.

The then 14-year-old prince was on a trip with some friends when he ordered the cherry brandy on the Isle of Lewis. The incident attracted international attention.

"We offered Charles the cherry brandy but he said he'd better not have that and tried the apricot brandy instead," said Carol Jones of Condessa, makers of liqueurs in Llanfaethlu, Anglesey, North Wales.

William and his father were earlier given a warm Welsh welcome in the hillsides as a forty-strong Welsh choir of children from the Theatr Ieuenctid Mon sang Happy Birthday to William in English and Welsh.

The birthday prince blew out 21 candles on an iced cake with Happy Birthday William (Penblwydd Hapus William) written in Welsh.

William's birthday visit to Wales


Prince William chose to visit Wales himself
Prince William is paying an official visit to Wales to mark his impending 21st birthday.
Thursday's trip, with his father Prince Charles, is the only official engagement to mark his coming of age on Saturday.

The pair are due to arrive by royal train at Bangor station, and then they will visit a food fair on the island of Anglesey.

Preparations for the visit had been underway for hours at the food fair before they arrived.

Local herb grower Rowena Mansfield will be presenting William with a book she has written about wild herbs of the area.

"It is very exciting," she told BBC Wales News Online.

"Will's birthday is the same as mine - but I won't be 21 again."

She hopes the event will boost the area. "The whole island is struggling, let's be honest," she said.

Ann Roberts, who produces free range eggs said: "Everybody is excited and getting ready. I think he will be surprised at the range of Welsh produce".

In the afternoon William and Charles will visit a day centre for single homeless people in Newport, south Wales.

This event is designed to give the media controlled access to William, in return for which the prince wants to be left alone to continue his student life.

Hopeless cook

On Wednesday it emerged that William himself chose to visit Wales as part of his birthday celebrations.

A spokeswoman for St James's Palace said it was fitting, as William will one day become Prince of Wales.

She added: "He wanted to highlight the importance of two issues - rural communities and the homeless."

During his visit to the Anglesey food fair William, a self-confessed hopeless cook, will see local produce and cookery demonstrations.

At the homeless project - Newport Action for Single Homeless - William and Charles will be introduced to clients and staff.



Prince William has hinted he will play a role in Welsh life

William visited a centre for the homeless with his mother when she was alive.


Pottery rooms

The princes will have the chance to see the project's work and its computer, art and pottery rooms.

Earlier this week, the project prepared for William's visit by helping launch a set of Royal Mail stamps to mark his birthday.

Staff at the centre were given a preview of the four stamps, which are expected to be very popular.

"We expect these striking images of Prince William will have worldwide appeal with both the public and collectors alike," said Paul Kelly, Royal Mail area manager for south Wales.

William is currently two years through a history of art degree at St Andrews University in Scotland.

There is speculation that after finishing his course William will spend six months learning Welsh at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, as his father did in the 1960s.
