Celebrating Welsh heritage is the key theme of the Prince of Wales' second day of his annual summer visit to Wales.

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall will begin the day seeing the newly-restored Galilee Chapel in Llantwit Major, which holds one of the most important collections of Celtic Christian stones in the UK.

From there, the Prince and the Duchess will visit to Dyffryn House and Gardens, a fine example of an Edwardian mansion and designed gardens.

In the afternoon, while the Duchess visits the Welsh War Memorial in Cardiff, Prince Charles will tour Sony's Bridgend factory, which has generated hundreds of jobs for the local area over the past 40 years.
