Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall will be in Cardiff for St David’s Day.

Clarence House has confirmed that Charles and Camilla will attend the National St David’s Day Service at St John The Baptist City Parish Church, St John Street, on Friday, March 1.

The following day the Queen is due to visit Swansea as part of the city’s celebrations to hand out leeks to The Royal Welsh.

After attending the service in Cardiff, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will meet students and members of staff during a visit to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

During the visit, the Prince and the Duchess will also go to a special St David’s Day concert.

The programme will include a performance of Cambria’s Homage to our Empress Queen – a work written by the first Royal Harpist, John Thomas, for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee of 1897.

It will also mark the centenary of John Thomas’ death in 1913.

The concert will feature the current Royal Harpist Hannah Stone, a graduate of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and former Royal Harpist Catrin Finch, who is now an artist in residence at the Royal Welsh College of Music, and also a postgraduate student in composition at the College.
