The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall spend a second day in Wales


Their Royal Highnesses started their second day of #TRHinWales in the beautiful village of Aberdaron where The Prince and The Duchess enjoyed a village walkabout. The walkabout began with a visit to St Hywyn's, Aberdaron's fifth century church. TRH then enjoyed sampling some of the village’s finest fish and chips and learnt how the village’s historic bakery still uses traditional techniques to bake its bread. 

The next stop for The Prince and The Duchess was to the South Caernarfon Creameries in Rhydygwystl, where they opened the creamery’s new extension. The creamery is a co-operative of 127 dairy farmers made up of farmers from both North and Mid-Wales who  supply milk and Welsh cheese and butter to UK retailers.

The Prince and The Duchess then visited Criccieth where The Prince met local clog makers and learnt how they still use traditional methods to make their shoes. The Duchess, meanwhile, stopped off at Cadwaladers ice cream parlour to sample some locally produced Welsh ice cream and then stopped in at the village’s Lifeboat Station to meet Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat crew.

The Prince of Wales’s final engagement today was at Bangor University, where he met Marine Science staff and students aboard the University’s research vessel, Prince Madog. The vessel is training the next generation of marine scientists in the study of biology, chemistry, geology and physics of our seas. 

Vice Chancellor of Bangor University Professor John G Hughes said: "We're honoured to have The Prince of Wales open our Marine Centre Wales.

"Our work here contributes to a strong and healthy marine economy for Wales and makes a significant contribution to sustainable Welsh fisheries and a sustainable marine environment."
