The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have completed a busy schedule of visits to the county, visiting all parts of the Duchy over the past three days.

The last day of the tour included a visit to Fistral Beach in Newquay.

Here they were shown how the marine litter which regularly washes up on our shores is now being recycled.

The Prince also had a close encounter with two giant creatures from the sea during the visit.
