A pledge to serve country

-

The new Prince and Princess of Wales are to visit Wales “very soon”, they have promised, as they pledge to serve its people with “great humility and respect”.

The Prince, who yesterday spoke to Mark Drakeford, the First Minister of Wales, by telephone, said he and his wife hold “deep affection” for the country, having made their first home on Anglesey as a family with the baby Prince George.

The call was the Prince’s first duty with his new title, which was confirmed by his father the King during his address to the nation on Friday.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said that the Prince and Princess “look forward to travelling to Wales very soon”.

King Charles is to visit Wales next week to attend a service of thanksgivi­ng for the late Queen.
