The Prince of Wales began his annual summer tour of the country with a trip to the village of Myddfai, near Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, last weekend to officially reveal the beautiful design.

The window was inspired by Welsh legends and is on display at the Myddfai Community Hall.

Charles spends a week at his Welsh home of Llwynywermod every year and visits the surrounding areas.

This year, the prince will be taking in eight Welsh counties, where he will host a musical evening, visit yoghurt companies, open a biomass plant and attend a farming conference, among many other engagements.

A Clarence House spokesman recently said: "The Prince of Wales is very much looking forward to a busy few days of engagements, visiting eight Welsh counties, and meeting people working in a huge variety of different roles, including in the military, in enterprise and in the heritage sector."

Charles' latest tour of Wales aims to promote sustainability and "celebrate enterprise".

It's already been a busy summer for Charles, who toured Canada alongside his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, recently.

While attending a star-studded national extravaganza in the country's capital of Ottawa, the 68-year-old royal praised the nation as an "example" to other countries.

He said: "We should be clear and proud that we are celebrating a country that others look to for example. An example of fairness and inclusion; of always striving to be better.

"Around the word Canada is recognised as a champion of human rights, as a peace-keeper, a responsible steward of the environment and natural resources, and as a powerful and consistent example of diversity and the power of inclusion."
