Prince Charles turns on the charm in Wales

Britain's Prince Charles has been charming the locals in the Welsh town of Wrexham.

The 66-year-old royal and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, have been meeting and greeting people in the town as part of their five-day tour of the country.

As part of the tour, Prince Charles visited Wern Isaf house in Llanfairfechan and was suitably impressed by the Grade II listed building, with local councillor Andrew Hinchliff telling the Daily Post newspaper: "The Prince had hoped to keep his visit to Wern Isaf private, but then later decided to make it public.

"The Institute is a stunning building, but we do need a lot more people using it, hopefully Prince Charles's visit will help give us a boost."

Meanwhile, the prince and his wife both poured pints at Denbighshire's Raven Inn at Llanarmon-yn-lal, where they took the time to stop and chat to some of the locals.

Bairmaid Denise Dugan said: "It is the social centre of the village along with the chapel. It's where most people come."

Earlier this week, Prince Charles met members of the English and Australian cricket teams ahead of the Ashes series, which started in Cardiff earlier today (08.07.15).
