"Celebrating Wales, Past, Present and Future" is the theme of this year's summer visit by The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince and The Duchess will, between them, officially open the Aber Valley Heritage Museum, visit the award-winning town of Usk and celebrate innovative technology, successfully manufactured in Wales. Every summer, Their Royal Highnesses spend a week at Llwynywermod, their Welsh farmhouse near Llandovery in Carmarthenshire, and carry out a series of visits to different parts of Wales.

This year's annual stay in Wales begins with visits to three successful Welsh family businesses. Cnwd food company, Melin Tregwynt Mill and Caws Cenarth Cheese factory are outstanding examples of companies offering local employment and Welsh-based production.
