The Prince of Wales, Patron of the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival and The Duchess of Cornwall are meeting museum staff and local school children during a visit to the poet's last home, the Dylan Thomas Boathouse in Laugharne.
Thomas lived at the Boathouse with his wife Caitlin and their children, Aeronwy, Llewelyn and Colm from 1949 to 1953 - the last four years of his life.
During this time he wrote many major pieces of work, including Under Milk Wood. The Boathouse is now a heritage centre.
