The Prince of Wales can make a “good breakfast”, the heir to the throne has said during a visit to Swansea this week. The heir to the throne, 40, was chatting with schoolchildren from St Thomas’ School choir during the Prince of Wales’ first visit to the nation since taking on the title.

He complimented the products in the kitchen of the local church, commenting: “That looks amazing.”

He then added: “I do a good breakfast – sausage, bacon and eggs.”

Kate, Princess of Wales, spoke of the cost of living crisis weighing heavily on many people’s minds during a visit to St Thomas’ Church.

She noted how many members of the community will be feeling “desperate” with rising prices, emphasising the importance of the food bank and support centre based at the church.

The new Prince and Princess of Wales greeted volunteers and frequent attendees at the church and community hub, as well as royal well-wishers just outside the premises.

This followed a visit to Anglesey earlier in the day, where they met volunteers at the RNLI base at Holyhead.

They met those involved with the lifeboat centre and the Princess of Wales was presented with a bouquet of flowers by a young boy from the town.

It was the first official duty for the couple since the end of the mourning period for the death of the late monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

The couple lived on Anglesey for a number of years after their wedding, with Prince George spending the early part of his life on the island.

The royal pair were handed the titles of Prince and Princess of Wales after the death of the Queen earlier this month.

Prince William’s father, King Charles, was the longest-serving Prince of Wales before handing the role to his son and heir.

A statement from Kensington Palace said the new Prince and Princess of Wales had pledged to fulfil their roles with “humility and great respect”.

The statement added: “The Prince and Princess look forward to celebrating Wales’s proud history and traditions as well as a future that is full of promise.

“They will seek to live up to the proud contribution that members of the Royal Family have made in years past.”

But the title of Prince of Wales has proved controversial, with the passing of the role to William reigniting the debate around its existence.

When Charles was invested with the title in 1969, the ceremony at Caernarfon Castle sparked protests and a bomb plot.

But it has emerged that Prince William is not likely to pursue an elaborate ceremony in the style of his father.

Kensington Palace said: “Right now is about deepening trust with the people of Wales and representing the dynamic Wales that there is today.

“There are no plans for the investiture yet.”
