PRINCE Charles and Camilla will come face-to-face with Doctor Who and his Tardis during their annual summer visit to Wales.
As Patron of the ‘Dylan Thomas 100’ Festival, Prince Charles, with Camilla, will mark preparations for Dylan Thomas’s centenary year by visiting the boat house in Laugharne where he wrote many of his major works.
The Duchess of Cornwall will also visit the largest independent publishing house in Wales, Gomer Press, in Llandysul, as the royal couple celebrate the best of Welsh culture and continue to highlight the excellent work being done by their charities in Wales.
A highlight of the week will be a visit by the royal couple to the set of BBC One drama ‘Doctor Who’ in Cardiff to mark the programme’s 50th anniversary.
The Prince and the Duchess will meet the Doctor, played by actor Matt Smith, his companion Clara, played by Jenna Coleman, and some of his most famous adversaries at the home of BBC Cymru Wales drama, Roath Lock studios.
A Clarence House spokesman said: ‘The Prince and the Duchess always enjoy their visit to Wales and this year they are looking forward to a varied programme of engagements including everything from Dylan Thomas’s Boat House to Doctor Who’s Tardis!
“Their Royal Highnesses are also keen to highlight the vital work being done across Wales by some of the charities they are involved with.”
The Prince and the Duchess will stay at their Welsh home Llwynywermod, near Llandovery, in Carmarthenshire, where they will host a folk evening and where the Duchess will hold a tea party for children involved with Dreams and Wishes – a charity which supports seriously ill children.
