How time flies. Two months of 2021 have already passed and March is here. So as a way of starting things with a bang, the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Prince William and Kate, have shared sweet photos on each of their Instagram accounts this Monday. This was to mark St. David’s Day-March 1st-the day the Welsh people celebrate their patron saint.
The Queen, 94, shared a photograph of her visit to the Royal Welsh Regiment on St. David’s Day back in 2017. In it the Queen is all dressed up in a violet coat and hat, being all smiles as she is being handed a bouquet of daffodils-the national flower of Wales.
The caption of the post read: “Dyde Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! Wishing all of our Welsh followers a Happy St Davids Day.”
Prince Charles and Camilla shared multiple photos on the Clarence House account. The photos were from their visit to the country from 2019, 2016, 2011 and 2018, with one of the photos being of the Prince interacting with a youngster during a walkabout.
The caption accompanying the post was both in English and Welsh: “To all our followers celebrating in Wales and around the world – wishing you a very happy #StDavidsDay!”
Prince Charles was officially given the title of Prince of Wales back in 1969 at Caernarfon Castle in North Wales.
During that year in the second year of his degree, the Prince attended the University College of Wales in Aberystwyth, where he studied Welsh history and language for a term.
Prince William and Kate Middleton also had a post up for St. David’s Day, sharing a photograph of them from their trip to Cardiff Castle in December 2020 during their royal train tour that took them all over the UK.
In the photo Kate looks stunning as ever in a red Alexander McQueen coat and a tartan scarf. There they met with students from the university and toasted marshmallows at an outdoors market as they chatted.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrote this with the post: “Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus i’n holl ddilynwyr Cymreig // Wishing all our Welsh followers a very happy St David’s Day!”
Each of the royal couples is at their homes as lockdown is still in place, with the Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla having already taken the vaccine and are doing well.
