The Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration took place in the gardens of Buckingham Palace on May 22nd. The event, held in The Prince’s 70th year, celebrates the achievements of His Royal Highness’ Patronages, Military affiliations and others involved in public service.
Head of Christ College, Gareth Pearson attended on behalf of Christ College Brecon. Prince Charles became Patron of the Christ College Foundation in 2000.
His Royal Highness and The Duchess of Cornwall were joined by 6,500 people from 386 of HRH’s patronages and all 18 of His Royal Highness’s military affiliations were represented. There were also 306 guests, drawn from the Police, Fire and Ambulance, Mountain Rescue, and RNLI.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also attended The Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration today, their first engagement as a married couple. The Duke of Sussex made a speech at the event, where he praised the work of The Prince of Wales over nearly 50 years.
The Duke also recognised the courage of the emergency services one year ago during the terrorist attack in Manchester. The Prince of Wales later met Harry, a Trafford Volunteer Cadet, who volunteered during the Manchester Arena attack a year ago today.
To help with the celebration, 100 Cadets from Youth United were on hand to assist in the garden and guests listened to musical entertainment form the Band of the Welsh Guards and Borough Welsh Choir – amongst others. The Prince of Wales celebrates his 70th birthday in November.
