TRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were in Cardiff today to celebrate Saint David’s Day. The Welsh holiday has marked the death of St. David, the patron saint of Wales, since the 18th century. The royal couple attended a church service honoring the day hosted by the city’s Lord Mayor. In his remarks he talked about Wales’ need to be open to the experiences of other nations:
"It is possible to be both distinctively Welsh and open to the insights of others - for all of us, in the end, belong to a global village and we impact and affect one another".
Following the service the Prince and the Duchess then met with some of the hundreds of people who had crowded around to meet them.
Prime Minister David Cameron sent his well wishes from England:
"I'm pleased to be flying the Welsh flag over Downing Street today and to wish everyone Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus - a very happy St David's Day."
St David’s Day activities were held all over the country in celebration of their proud Welsh heritage.
