The Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Catherine, will be visiting Wales on April 27 and 28. The Royal couple is set to tour the South Wales Valleys and Mid Wales where they’ll spend time with the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary year, and visit Dowlais Rugby Club.
During the visit, William and Catherine will meet the meat mountain rescue climbers at the Dowlais Rugby Club. The club is a feeder club to Cardiff Blues and a popular spot for the climbers to socialise and relax when they are off duty. The majority of the itinerary is being kept under wrap to manage the crowd and well-wishers.
Prince William received the title of ‘Prince of Wales’ in September 2022 after the demise of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, when his father ascended to the throne. The title is reserved for the direct heir who is first in line to the British throne.
This would be William and Catherine’s second visit to Wales this year. They visited Wales in February this year ahead of the feast day for St. David, Wales’ patron saint. The next day they attended the Welsh Guard’s parade in Windsor.
The next 2 weeks are anticipated to be busy weeks for the British Royal Family. King Charles III will be crowned at Westminster Abbey on May 06th. Members of the British Royal Family, government, special guests from various fields of life, Foreign Royals and Dignitaries are on the guest list.
Earlier this week, Kensington Palace released a new picture of the Late Queen Elizabeth II with a few of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to mark what would have been her 97th birthday. The picture was taken by the Princess of Wales at Balmoral Castle last year – sometime before her death.
