THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE TO VISIT NORTH WALES
Wednesday 8th May, 2019
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit North Wales on Wednesday 8th May to meet with individuals and organisations in the region who are encouraging people to look after their communities and protect the natural environment.
Their Royal Highnesses will firstly visit the Caernarfon Coastguard Search and Rescue Helicopter Base. Until 2015, search and rescue operated out of RAF Valley on Anglesey, where The Duke worked as an RAF search and rescue pilot between 2010-2013. Their Royal Highnesses will view the Coastguard’s new Sikorsky S92 helicopters, and meet members of the search and rescue team, many of whom previously worked alongside The Duke at RAF Valley. The Duke and Duchess will then join a discussion with crewmembers about the mental health challenges that result from working as first responders, and will also meet staff from the Wales Air Ambulance, which operates next door to Caernarfon Search and Rescue.
From Caernarfon, Their Royal Highnesses will travel to Anglesey to visit Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, a thriving local business which has been operating for over two decades, and which won the Queen’s Award for Sustainability in 2017. The Duke and Duchess will see the salt making process from hand harvesting to packaging, and will learn more about Halen Môn’s collaborations with other local food producers, and their involvement in community initiatives.
