Arriving on a private jet, Prince William and Kate arrived in a very excited Cornwall last week for a 2-day visit. The Duke and Duchess are said to have spent the night in the stunning, 500 hundred-year-old, historical Restormal Manor, owned by the Duchy of Cornwall. On the Royal’s trip, they met up with many local organisations, businesses, charities, and inspirational Duchy of Cornwall projects, allowing them to meet local people and learn more about Cornwall.
The Royal couple started their trip with a visit to Truro Cathedral where they were met by Cornish locals and loyal fans who had waited very patiently for their arrival. There they signed a slate in support of the cathedral’s roof repairs fundraising appeal after meeting officials from the diocese of the cathedral. William and Kate went on to visit Zebs, a space designed especially for young people to spend time with their friends and enjoy different activities, as well as receive support if wished. The couple were shown a mental health photography project created by a group of young women, that William thought was very impressive.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also had the opportunity to learn about the Wave Project and how surfing is used to help children with anxiety, as well as improve their mental well-being. After this, the couple payed a visit to the Healey’s Cyder Farm, where the Duchess pulled a pint of Rattler and enjoyed sampling delicious Cornish Whisky and strawberry wine. The Royal couple were then presented with a toy tractor for George and a toy Rabbit for Charlotte, before heading off the Isle of Scilly.
We really admire the Royal Family and have worked on several different projects in celebration, including The Queen’s Online Birthday Book, that was filled with heartfelt birthday messages from all over the world. The Bishop of Truro and Rt Revd Tim Thornton also wrote a lovely message to The Queen. If you would like to use an online book for your charity, project or in honour of a loved one contact us to find out how we can create one for you.
