Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Yorkshire next week, with a number of engagements planned.

The visit will cover Stamford Bridge, the Harrogate International Festival, Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre and Bettys & Taylors Group.

Stamford Bridge

Their Royal Highnesses will meet residents and business owners who were affected by flooding just after Christmas in the East Yorkshire village of Stamford Bridge.

TRHs are keen to hear first-hand how the floods impacted upon local people and their businesses. The Prince and Duchess will also meet representatives from The Prince’s Business Emergency Resilience Group (BERG) which helps businesses and communities across the UK to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies such as flooding, cyber-attacks and civil unrest. BERG has recently been active in Yorkshire.

Harrogate International Festivals

The Prince of Wales, Patron, Harrogate International Festivals, and The Duchess of Cornwall, will see a showcase of events to mark Harrogate International Festivals’ 50th anniversary year and will meet supporters and some of the key groups involved, including ‘Musical Mums’, ‘Kids, Spies and Private Eyes’ and ‘Young Musicians’.

They will also watch a short musical performance by soprano Lesley Garrett and clarinettist Emma Johnson, introduced by Julian Lloyd Webber, in The Royal Hall.

Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre

The Prince of Wales, Patron, Macmillan Cancer Support, and The Duchess of Cornwall, will meet patients and staff as they tour the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, Harrogate District Hospital.

The Prince of Wales is Patron of a number of cancer charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, The Haven, Breast Cancer Now and Penny Brohn UK. His Royal Highness believes in safe and effective, evidence-based complementary medicine integrated with conventional medicine, not as an alternative to it. The Duchess of Cornwall is President of Maggie’s Centres (cancer care centres)

The centre’s philosophy is to offer patients the highest quality treatments, alongside integrated supportive care and complementary therapies, and to ensure it gives a truly holistic and therapeutic service.

Taylors of Harrogate

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will visit Taylors of Harrogate and will meet staff in the tea tasting rooms, before visiting the ‘Betty’s’ cookery school and craft bakery, Plumpton Park, Harrogate.
