Prince Charles And Camilla’s Merseyside Engagements

Today Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall attended official engagements in Merseyside.

The first visit of the day was to Victoria Gallery and Museum at the University of Liverpool.

The visit was to celebrate His Royal Highness and The President’s patronage of the Liverpool Institute of Irish Studies.

At the University, The Prince and The Duchess met The President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins and his wife Mrs Sabina Higgins.

The Prince of Wales and The President of Ireland both signed the Centre’s Charter, in honour of a joint Patronage.

The Prince of Wales then visited St George’s Hall to view the newly discovered “undercroft” – traditionally a cellar used for storage in mediaeval times but which has now been transformed into gallery spaces.

HRH was also treated to The Alice Experience”, an immersive theatre production in celebration of Liverpool’s cultural diversity and afterwards, he met and spoke with some of the cast members.

HRH met with Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter, Dr Makiziwe Mandela, at St George’s Hall.

Dr Makiziwe Mandela donated several of her father’s drawings for a permanent display at the hall.

The Royal Albert Dock would be gaining Royal status on its 175th anniversary in 2021 and the Prince of Wales visited it today.

The dock was opened by Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, in 1846.

Today, Prince Charles toured the Royal Albert Dck, meeting with the locals and business owners as well as the Tate museum and the International Slavery Museum

The final visit of HRH was to the MARIE CURIE HOSPICE

This year, the charity would be marking its 60th anniversary and today HRH met with patients, nurses and the volunteers who work at the centre.

Meanwhile in Merseyside, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall paid a visit to the iconic Liverpool mural in Jamaica Street in the Baltic Triangle.

The art piece, called “For All Liverpool’s Liver Birds” was created by street artist PAUL CURTIS.

Later this evening, Prince Charles went to the Royal Opera House to watch a new ballet dedicated in honour of HRH’s 70th Birthday.

HRH has been patron of the Royal Ballet since 2003.

TRH coordinated in an all-blue ensemble for their Merseyside engagements today.

The Duchess was dressed in a royal blue coat, a smart bag,  black suede boots, and gloves.
