‘Glowing!’: William, Kate spark excitement in first visit to Wales with new titles


The Princess of Wales was “glowing” as she adorably interacted with children during the couple’s visits to Anglesey and Swansea.

“I wont have a bad word said about them! So lucky to see and meet our new Prince and Princess of Wales… and shaking hands with Kate”.

The Princess adorably interacted with a two-year-old girl dressed in a full traditional Welsh costume while at St Thomas Church in Swansea.

Kate and little Charlotte Bunting, the daughter of the church’s Reverend, met at the church’s baby bank. The Princess told the two-year-old: “I have a Charlotte at home too.”

She added: “Do you know where my Charlotte is? She’s in school with her brothers George and Louis.”

US actor and producer Tyler Perry spoke about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry during an interview. The star opened up about the Duke and Duchess, offering insight into the couple’s relationship.

The Prince of Wales has revealed he has started learning Welsh as it emerged he has no plans to stage a formal investiture to mark receiving his new title.

William spoke about getting to grips with the language with Reverend Steven Bunting from St Thomas Church in Swansea where he and Kate visited on Tuesday afternoon, telling him he had already picked up the word ‘paned’, meaning a cup of tea.

Rev Bunting told the PA news agency: “We already know they love Wales, but having them here has been amazing and is an early sign, I think, of their commitment to Wales.

“They’ve blown us away by speaking to every person young and old, it shows how wholly committed they are to their role as Prince and Princess of Wales.

“I think he’s taking being Prince of Wales very, very seriously.”

His father, King Charles, studied Welsh while at university in Aberystwyth and paid tribute to his teacher Tedi Millward when he died in 2020.

It is understood William has no plans for “any kind” of an investiture like the ceremony staged for the King, who was officially invested with the title Prince of Wales by the Queen during an event staged at Caernarfon Castle in July 1969.

A royal source said in the aftermath of the Queen’s death: “The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path.”
