Prince William and Kate Middleton will be visiting Cardiff this Saturday where they will meet some of Wales’ best-known performers just ahead of the city’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration Concert.
Buckingham Palace has revealed that the two royals will meet the crew at Cardiff Castle and will learn about the show’s lighting, sound and visual effects, as well as getting hands-on with some final preparations.
There they will get the chance to meet the show hosts, Aled Jones and Shan Cothi, and a whole slew of other performers, including the likes of Mike Peters from The Alarm, singer Bonnie Tyler, West-End star John Owen Jones, weatherman OwainWyn Evans and Pendyrus Male Voice Choir.
The performance is set to finish at 7pm, but the crowds are expected to stay on and watch BBC’s Party at the Palace on giant screens on the castle grounds.
It will be quite the eventful jubilee bank holiday weekend, with other members of the royal family also making trips to other home nations, such as the Earl and Countess of Wessex visiting Northern Ireland.
During their visit, Sophie and Edward will meet children that are part of multicultural street performance, join in with art and craft sessions, and speak to people as they share their personal memories of meeting the Queen.
Princess Anne, accompanied by her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, will be visiting Edinburgh on Friday. The two senior royals will tour Edinburgh Zoo before meeting with children for an animal handling session in the Rainforest Room. The royals will cap off their tour with a visit to the much-loved Penguin Enclosure.
Besides this, Princess Royal will visit HMS Albion and inspect a guard of honor before boarding the amphibious transport dock and meeting representatives from charities across Scotland.
