Prince Charles will visit Pontypridd on Friday, February 21, to meet with business owners and residents affected by Storm Dennis.
The South Wales Valleys town was one of the worst hit areas in the UK by Storm Dennis over the weekend, with the River Taff bursting its banks and flooding the high street of the town.
The river reached its highest level in 40 years, which resulted in an enormous mess to many buildings and homes. Donations have been pouring in via online fundraisers to support those affected in the area.
Prince Charles has announced his planned visit to the area to support those involved in the rescue and support efforts.
His public diary states that he will visit the CAF train factory in Newport to meet employees and officially open the facility. Charles will also visit the Aston Martin Lagonda factory in St Athan, followed by the British Airways maintenance centre – celebrating it’s 100th anniversary at Cardiff Airport. From there, Charles will visit the Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth, before arriving at Pontypridd to offer support.
This will be the second Royal visit to Wales this month, after Prince William and Kate recently visited RNLI lifeboat station and Tata Steel in Port Talbot.
