A FLURRY of Welsh and Pembrokeshire flags welcomed the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall as they arrived in Llangwm as part of a summer tour of Wales.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived in the Pembrokeshire village on Tuesday, July 3 at 10.30am, where they were greeted by Sara Edwards, the lord-lieutenant of Dyfed, as well as other local dignitaries.

Michael John, Llangwm’s County Councillor, said the day was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

"This is a fantastic day for the village and for Pembrokeshire. For the Prince to be able to visit here on his Welsh visit is an honour,” he said.

The royal couple started off their visit at the village Methodist Chapel, where they met with the chapel’s minister Hugh-John, as well as local artists Fiona Cutting, Jasmine Cutting, Graham Brace, and David Wilson.

“It is just a great privilege to have been asked to be here,” said oil and acrylic painter Jasmine.

While in the chapel the royal couple also met with local crafts people and gardeners.

Liz and Stuart Beresford have raised more than £5,000 over the last five years by selling home-grown flowers, and displayed a collection of flowers as well as vegetables they had grown together with their neighbours Dai and Sue Davies.

“Camilla complimented us – she said she liked the cosmos,” said Mrs Beresford.

After leaving the chapel, the prince and duchess met with Llangwm’s residents on the village green.

There they heard music from the Jumping Fleas, a local ukulele orchestra, but were unable to taste Owen Hall’s attempt at making the world’s largest Welsh Cake due to an unfortunate last minute accident.

In St Jerome’s Church, Pamela Hunt explained to Charles and Camilla the work which had been carried out on the Talking Tapestry of Llangwm project.

“Our project has taken advantage of the fantastic skills of many local people. To have the Prince of Wales here – it’s brilliant to have this recognition.”

The Village Voices choir also gave a special performance for the prince and duchess, singing a requiem from the village opera, accompanied on piano by it's composer Sam Howley.

The last stop on the royal visit was a trip to the banks of Black Tar, where the Prince met with Jennifer Poole, a Llangwm resident who explained the history of the areas fisherwomen and oyster pickers.
