Charles and Camilla will travel to the Welsh capital on Friday, having already toured parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It will be the first time the new King has set foot on Welsh soil since ascending to the throne last week.

He has bestowed his former title, the Prince of Wales, on his son William, whose wife, Kate, is now the Princess of Wales.

The royal couple’s first stop will be at Llandaff Cathedral, where they will be greeted by the Lord Lieutenant of South Glamorgan, before taking part in a Service of Prayer and Reflection for the Life of the Queen, which will be led by the Dean.

The Archbishop of Wales, Bishop of Bangor Andy John, will give the address and First Minister Mark Drakeford will give a reading.

After the service, Charles and Camilla will greet schoolchildren and members of the local community who have gathered to see them.

Siambr

The King and Queen Consort will then be presented with a Motion of Condolence inside the Senedd’s Siambr, its main debating chamber, in Cardiff Bay.

They will have a chance to read condolence messages from members, including the leaders of all the main political parties, who took part in a special session on Sunday when the Senedd was recalled.

The King is expected to then share a private audience with Mr Drakeford and the Senedd’s presiding officer, Elin Jones, at Cardiff Castle.

He and Camilla will then have a reception with guests from local organisations, charities and members of faith communities.

Wales will be the last country in the United Kingdom Charles will visit before the Queen’s state funeral on Monday (September 19).

Llandaff residents have been TOLD to move theirs cars – or else! Some of them only had an hours notice. And local roads are being closed for a week. You dont have to be a dyed in the wool Welsh republican to see how wrong this is.

I sincerely hope the residents of Llandaff’s eyes are now opened as to the sort of nasty, spoilt and entitled institition this is.

Will he publicly proclaim his deepest regret over the killing of the last Prince of Wales, as it is Owain Glyndwr Day?

I hope that at least some parents of the Llandaff schoolchildren being forced to participate in this farce will keep their children out of school that day.

Welcome them as you would for the head of state of any foreign country. Show the great character of the Welsh people!
