Prince William and Middleton’s trip to Wales coincided with St. David’s Day (AKA the Feast of Saint David), which marks the date of his death in 589 A.D. While there, the royal couple stopped by Pant Farm in Llanvetherine, where they learned about the impact that farming has on the local economy. They even spoke with Gary and Jess Yeomans, who are well-known goat milk distributers.
Later in the day, Prince William and Middleton visited the Abergavenny Market, which sources produce from local vendors (including Pant Farm). They also made Welsh cakes and planted a tree in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
After the outing, the royal couple shared their thoughts on Twitter. “Learning about the importance of the agricultural industry to people in rural communities here in Wales this #StDavidsDay,” they wrote. “Working with local businesses, promoting local produce and sustainable practices you can really see how farms like this are the lifeblood of the community.”
Coordination at its finest.
