The Prince of Wales delighted crowds waiting to greet him at Auckland Castle. He took time to talk to local scouts and brownies and residents of a local residential home. Many of those who met him said how nice it was to see him in Bishop Auckland.
He will have a guided tour of the castle and see the Zurbaran paintings before heading to Northumberland for a two-day tour.
