Prince William And Kate Celebrate St David’s Day In Wales
Prince William and Kate Middleton are in South Wales, planting a tree for the Queen’s Jubilee and making Welsh Cakes to mark St David’s Day.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who are due to become Prince and Princess of Wales one day began their day by visiting Pent Farm, a goat farm located in Llanvetherine, near Abergavenny, which has been supplying goat milk to a local cheese maker for over 20 years!
The current Prince of Wales, Charles, also visited Gary and Jess Yeomans for tea and Welsh Cakes at Pent Farm all the way back in 2002.
Dressed appropriately for her visit, the Duchess of Cambridge was sporting her Seeland jacket with black jeans and brown Blundstone boots, accessorizing with a red scarf and the national emblem of Wales, the daffodil, as a pin, identical to the one William was wearing.
After their experiences at the farm, the royal couple tweeted: “Seeing first-hand the benefits that local businesses receive through their communities at this lovely family-run farm, promoting local produce and sustainable practices.
“Learning about the importance of the agricultural industry to people in rural communities here in Wales this #StDavidsDay.
“Working with local businesses, promoting local produce and sustainable practices you can really see how farms like this are the lifeblood of the community.”
While in Wales, Prince William and Kate also visited Abergavenny Market where Kate received a bouquet of daffodils from a group of children who were among the crowds gathered to greet them.
The royal couple will also visitBlaenavonHwb, a community-focused youth center that helps to support over 600 local young people and meet some of the people, who range from ages 11 to 25, supported by the charity, they will also have a go at making Welsh cakes!
Blaenavon, which is located on the edge of the South Wales valleys, has been going through a rough patch in its history over the past 30 years, after the decline of the mining industry, now the Hwb aims to help the next generation fulfill their full potential.
The Hwb provides space for classes, leisure activities and supports vulnerable young people.
