Britain's Prince Charles is to visit Cumbria next week in his capacity as patron of the The Prince's Countryside Fund and The Campaign for Wool.

The 66-year-old royal - who recently toured the US alongside his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall - is to visit the Rheged Centre near Penrith, where he will meet farmers and businesses benefiting from the work of his two charities, while he is also set to view the Herdwick sheep photographic exhibition, 'A Portrait of Lakeland', by Ian Lawson.

What's more, the prince will visit the Westmorland Agricultural Society in Kendal, where he will meet locals, as well as representatives from a number of local initiatives, like Broadband for the Rural North, the News & Star reports.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that the prince is to attend a premiere of Sir Hubert Parry's previously unplayed works.

The royal is a self-confessed fan of the influential musician and will be among the attendees when the event is staged in May.

Speaking during a BBC documentary about his music, Prince Charles once said: "It gives you tingles up the spine and tears in your eyes."
