The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall spent the day in Liverpool, undertaking numerous engagements each.
The couple began the day at the World Museum to view ‘The Mayas: revelation of an endless time’ exhibition. This is a collection of objects from museums and ancient Mayan sites in Mexico.
The Prince and Duchess then went their separate ways, with Charles heading to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. The new facility was partially designed the Children and Young Person’s Design Group, and the Prince met with them. He also spoke to staff and patients.
The Duchess meanwhile officially opened the Kids in Need and Distress (KIND) Children’s Centre. Camilla visited back in 2010 when she launched an appeal to raise money for works on a new Health and Wellbeing centre, which was recently finished.
Her Royal Highness visited the facility, established by Stephen Yip MBE, in 2010 when she launched an appeal to raise funds for the transformation of a derelict part of the building into a new Health and Wellbeing centre.
Camilla’s next stop was Manor Primary School, and there she met with those who are supported by the Foundation Years Trust, which helps parents from pregnancy through to when their children begin to attend primary school, as well as volunteers and staff.
The Duchess also joined parents and their children who take part in a “Read It Together” project, which encourages reading at home. The group enjoyed stories and poems including ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ to a poem by Carol Ann Duffy.
