The Prince and Princess of Wales visited west Wales on Friday to commemorate the life of the Late Queen Elizabeth II on the first anniversary of her death.

Their Royal Highnesses joined a short private service in St Davids which will include a commemoration of Her Late Majesty’s life.

They meet with members of the local community who met the Late Queen.

The city's cathedral is particularly significant to the royal family. Since the 16th century, the UK monarch has had their own designated seat in the cathedral.

Her Late Majesty sat there on four occasions during her visits to St Davids.

William and Kate shared a message on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday morning, paying personal tribute to the late Queen.

It read: “Today we remember the extraordinary life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth. We all miss you. W & C”

It was accompanied by a photo of the late monarch surrounded by her great-grandchildren including Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis and her two youngest grandchildren.

The Waleses were also pictured on the Buckingham Palace balcony with the late Queen and the now-King during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, with another image of the Queen dressed in a vibrant blue coat and hat.

The Prince and Princess of Wales then visited the nearby Câr-Y-Môr Seaweed Farm.

The seaweed farm describes itself as "Wales’ first regenerative seaweed and shellfish farm."

They met staff and volunteers to hear about the impact the farm’s work is having, before taking a boat out to the farm to see the seaweed growing.

The Prince and Princess of Wales then finished their tour with a visit to the RNLI Lifeboat Station at St Davids.

They met crew, volunteers and members of the public who have been helped by the local unit.

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was Patron of the RNLI from 1952 until her death last year.

This was the couple's third visit to Wales since taking up their titles.

They visited Bannau Brycheiniog and Aberfan in April, earlier this year.

The royal couple have spoken about wanting to use their position to advocate for the people of Wales and showcase the country to the world.
