Charles and Camilla’s First Day in Cornwall
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have begun their three-day visit to Cornwall today, a visit which will be focusing on supporting tourism and the local community.
During the day, Charles and Camilla stopped in two towns – Padstow and Ladock – and paid visits to businesses and charities which support each one. In Padstow, a fishing town, the couple visited a number of restaurants, including The Seafood restaurant. They also spoke with a large amount of the town’s business owners, and met with emergency personnel from the lifeboat sector.
Splitting away from her husband, the Duchess then visited the disaster relief charity ShelterBox, of which she is President. The charity provides emergency shelter for people affected by natural disasters, and Camilla was shown some of the tents they use. Charles, meanwhile, visited one of his own patronages, The Almshouse Foundation.
The Prince and the Duchess headed over to Ladock in the late afternoon, where they visited The Falmouth Arms pub, which also doubles as a library for its patrons. Prince Charles was shown how to pull a pint, before the couple hosted a reception that evening for groups that benefit from the Duchy Benevolent Fund.
