Royal Visit to Cornwall Begins

(Updated 7:13am 2nd July 2012)
Cornwall is welcoming Prince Charles and Camilla.
The royal couple are visiting the Duchy and Isles of Scilly for three days.
They will meet hundreds of charity workers at a garden party in Truro on Monday. Around 800 from across Cornwall including local dignitaries, politicians and representatives from the Duchy's food, farming and fishing industries. The party will also recognise unsung heroes from the voluntary sector, including Cornish charities with royal patronage.
First they're officially opening Heartlands in Pool. Dubbed the UK's first free cultural playground, the £35m scheme aims to kickstart regeneration around Camborne, Pool and Redruth.
State of the art World Heritage Site exhibitions rub shoulders with a giant adventure playground and artists' workshops.
Around a thousand local schoolchildren will turn out to welcome the royal couple.
Chairman Malcolm Moyle told Pirate FM, "It's the icing on the cake to be honest with you. To get the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall to come here to celebrate what we've done, for them to show interest in what the community has achieved. That's fantastic.
"To get not just the people from Camborne and Redruth but from all over Cornwall coming here and saying, 'Wow, this is something quite sensational' even on wet, cold days, it's absolutely tremendous."7:13am 2nd July 2012
