He could be a grandfather by the end of the day, but Prince Charles is visiting Cornwall.
He and Camilla are starting Monday in Bude - meeting local surf lifesavers and RNLI crew.
They will tour the newly refurbished Stratton hospital and unveil a plaque.
Thousands are expected to turn out to greet them on their tour.
But one of the few that will meet them in person is Rosa, from Stratton Primary School, who will present them with a posy. She said: "I'm quite nervous, but quite privileged to do it. I think it's good they're coming here - because I think Bude and Stratton are very nice places to stay.
"Cornwall has its own language, which not many places do. There are also quite famous foods - like pasties and cream teas and things.
Then the Duchess of Cornwall is off to Little Harbour at Porthpean.
She will meet families who use the children's hospice and Pirate FM's Bev the Boss (below left), representing listeners who helped raise the millions needed to build it.
Founder Eddie Farwell said: "We know that she has an affinity with the movement throughout the UK and is currently patron of the world's first children's hospice which was Helen House in Oxford, a place that I used, along with my late wife, before our son and daughter died - so it's very special.
"It's so important - not only for the children and families, not only for the communities around but also for our supporters, who it encourages and says thank you to. It's always a great privilege."
The royal couple will conclude their trip to Cornwall by visiting Lostwithiel - where they will return on Wednesday.2:26pm 15th July 2013
