Day 1: The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall visit Devon and Cornwall


The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall today began their annual visit to Devon and Cornwall.

Their Royal Highnesses began the visit at Tintagel Castle, one of more than 270 ancient monuments scheduled by English Heritage across the Duchy.

Their Royal Highnesses opened a new footbridge, which crosses over a 190ft gorge, allowing visitors to observe coastal views not seen since the Middle Ages.

Later this afternoon, The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Cornwall Air Ambulance base in Newquay. In celebration of her 10th year as Patron of the Trust, Her Royal Highness launched their new helicopter, 'Duchess of Cornwall' and met the crew who will be flying it.
