The Prince of Wales is due to visit the RAF base where his son the Duke of Cambridge served.

Charles will tour RAF Valley in Anglesey and meet cadets, pilots and engineers at the site, where William served a three-year tour with the RAF Search and Rescue Force.

William joined C Flight, 22 Squadron in 2010 and he and wife Kate lived in Anglesey until 2013.

The Duke and Duchess returned to the base in February 2016 to attend a ceremony marking the closure of the UK's search and rescue helicopter force, which was disbanded after the service was privatised.

Charles's visit to the RAF station, which provides advanced pilot training, will form part of the final day of his Welsh summer tour.

Earlier in the week he visited sites including the Royal Mint factory in Llantrisant, Rhondda Cynon Taf, and the Regimental Museum of The Royal Welsh, where he met regimental goat Shenkin III.

He is due to spend Friday in North Wales and will also visit the Moneypenny call centre in Wrexham, yogurt factory Village Dairy in Denbigh and the restored Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens in Anglesey.
