Prince Charles has made his first visit to the island of Lindisfarne.
The heir to the British throne followed in the footsteps of The Queen, quite literally taking the same route she took on a visit to the Northumbrian island - also known as Holy Island - in 1958.
The prince met with islanders yesterday (24.07.12) on the final day of his two-day tour of Northumberland, and some of whom had met his mother during her visit.
Margaret Devine - who previously met the British monarch - said: "I felt very nervous back then, just like I was feeling today. The bowl was a gift from the school and I was the head girl.
"The Queen said at the time, 'I'd love to bring my children to the island'. Hopefully the next generation of royals will come too and it will carry on."
The prince walked to the top of a steep cobbled path to the entrance of Lindisfarne Castle, and was shown around it by property manager Simon Lee.
He said: "It's been great. He was really interested in the architecture and he was particularly keen to see the garden."
Castle gardener Philippa Hodkinson added: "He was very keen and I think he knew most of the plants. I was nervous but he really put me at ease."
Later the prince - who is on a tour of Northern England - also opened a Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food centre at Alnwick Castle.
