UK’s Prince Charles and Camilla Visit Ireland

DUBLIN – Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were given a “warm and friendly welcome” to Ireland.

Their royal tour began on Monday and ended on Tuesday before they set off for Northern Ireland for another two days.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were met at the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation in Wicklow, south of Dublin, by Ireland’s President Michael Higgins and his wife Sabina Higgins.

Glencree is a charitable organization that works to promote peace and reconciliation between communities that were affected by violence conflict in Ireland.

The group watched a performance of traditional music and dancing by traditional Irish and Ulster Scots music group the Hounds of Ulster.

The royal couple paused to have a photograph taken in front of Sugarloaf Mountain in County Wicklow.

Charles said in a post from his official twitter account: “It’s such a particular joy to visit County Wicklow on this occasion and to receive such a warm and friendly welcome.”

Camilla met staff and clients at Bray Women’s Shelter, which offers crisis accommodation to women and children who have suffered from domestic abuse.

On Tuesday, the first stop for Charles was the picturesque Kilmacurragh Botanic Gardens.

Meanwhile, Camilla visited Avoca Mill, Ireland’s oldest working mill in Avoca Village, County Wicklow.

She was shown a working loom and presented with a multicoloured blanket as a gift for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn son Archie.

Charles visited Ireland’s largest National Park, Wicklow Mountains, and then Glendalough Monastic Site.

Most of the buildings that survive today in the early Christian monastic settlement date from the 10th-12th centuries.

Clarence House said in a tweet at the end of the visit: “Thank you to everyone who welcomed the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall to Ireland this week.”

The trip was the couple’s fifth annual visit to Ireland since 2015.

It was made at the request of the British Government to “celebrate the links between the two nations and their people,” according to Clarence House.
