Today, Prince Charles is set to gain an experience of Scottish art and rural life during a visit to Caithness, one of the northernmost parts of Great Britain.
The Duke of Rothesay, as Charles is known in Scotland, will pay a visit to the North Highland College Land-Based Centre for Game Keeping and Veterinary Nursing in Halkirk, before going to the nearby Thurso High School. At the school, which is just a few miles south of the northernmost point of the mainland, His Royal Highness will view an exhibition by the Society of Caithness Artists. The Duke has been carrying out a number of engagements in the past week. On a visit to Glendelvine Estate in Perthshire, he was presented with a giant hand-made red squirrel, as a gift for grandson George on the occasion of his first birthday. On Friday, he visited Morton Young and Borland, a textile firm in Glasgow, where, upon his arrival, he was presented with a bunch of posies by admirers.
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, who are currently on their annual visit to Scotland, have been in the country since last Monday. On the first day, they visited a Jazz and Blues Festival in Edinburgh, as reported by Royal Central. The next day saw the Duchess also making a few unexpected visits on her own around Edinburgh and Perth. Finally, the royal couple met with Athletes participating in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, before the opening ceremony on Wednesday.
Next week, the Prince will attend a commemoration of the First World War in Glasgow Cathedral on behalf of The Queen, before participating in a wreath-laying ceremony at George Square.
