Prince Charles' tour of Columbia

ICONINSIDER — Prince Charles kicked off the final day of his two-day tour of Cumbria on Tuesday (11.04.17).
The 68-year-old royal – the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip – has only just returned from his tour of Europe with his wife Duchess Camilla but there’s certainly no time to rest as he’s now in North West England visiting the tour of Appleby to see how they have recovered following the horrific flooding the residents experienced there in 2015.
As well as speaking to the locals, the prince will also tour Appleby Creamery, a cheese firm, which is partnering with local farmers and small producers to support the rural economy.
Although today is a busy day, Charles didn’t stop yesterday either as he arrived in Whitehaven to open the new Whitehaven Foyer, a charity providing accommodation to young people.
He was then treated to a preview of the Rosehill Theatre ahead of it’s opening in May.
Meanwhile, last weekend, Charles and his sons Prince William and Harry travelled to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial near Lille in northern France on Sunday (09.04.17) to commemorate the 100th anniversary since capture of Vimy Ridge during the First World War.
The Battle of Vimy Ridge took place over four days in 1917, and resulted in around 3,500 Canadian soldiers losing their lives, whilst another 10,000 were left wounded. The battle is regarded as Canada’s most notable military victory and a symbol of the birth of the country’s national pride.
Prince Charles told around 25,000 Canadians who had gathered at the ceremony that although the battle marked the “bloodiest day” in Canadian history, it also showcased the country “at it’s best.”
