The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have paid a visit to the Royal Welsh Show - Prince Charles' first appearance in Wales as a grandfather.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall visited the main ring and the food hall, as well as meeting farmers, rural charities, volunteers and local business owners.

It was Prince Charles' seventh visit to the show - his first visit was in 1969 and he has returned in 1988, 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2001 - but a first for the Duchess.

The Prince is a former president of the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, which runs the event.
