Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, rides a jaunting car while Britain’s Prince Charles enjoys the view with Dr Philip Buckley of the OPW. During their visit to Ireland, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Cork yesterday, and are visiting Kerry today.
Quisling fishmonger Pat O’Connell, who met The Queen at her previous visit to the English Market in Cork, 2011 (top), and was subsequently invited to Buckingham Palace in 2014, with Britain’s Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and Tanaiste SImon Coveney during the visit to Ireland by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The couple are in Cork today, and will be visiting Kerry tomorrow. Expect possible Healy-Rae action.
Frank O’Dea, of Balla Bán Art Gallery in Westbury Mall, Dublin, writes:
With Prince Charles and Camilla’s arrival to Dublin today, we have decided to mark the occasion with a bit of memorabilia of the man himself in the gallery window – a mug of a younger Prince Charles when he got engaged to Lady Diana. It’s the last of its kind and costs €20.
The inscription reads:
“Whatever beverage brims in this cup
Thank God for PRINCE CHARLES when you pick it up
And as you quaff it, bless that same grand Planner
Who gave him for a bride the fair DIANA.”
