Prince Charles

Prince Charles

Britain's Prince Charles is to open a nursery at one of Wales' top independent schools.

The prince, who is on a pre-Christmas tour of the country, is to open the new facility at Llandovery College in Carmarthenshire, which ran up debts of £4 million in 2012, before a new company assumed responsibility for the institution.

In September, a brand new bilingual nursery school opened and the visit is likely to be extra special for the prince, who has a farmhouse at nearby Myddfai, which he uses during his summertime tours of Wales.

The 66-year-old prince's pre-Christmas tour has taken him to a number of interesting destinations in the country, including Newbridge in Caerphilly, where he opened a workingmen's club.

What's more, he travelled to Swansea to pay a visit to soldiers who have returned from the conflict in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the prince and the Duchess of Cornwall have paid a special tribute to Prince Harry in their Christmas card.

The card features a picture of the couple at the Invictus Games, the event Harry helped organise over the summer.

The event in London recognised the servicemen and women who had been injured in various conflicts.
