Prince Charles and Camilla have been in Cheshire today (Wednesday) for official engagements.
They separated to see different parts of Styal near Wilmslow at around mid-morning before meeting up in Congleton.
The Prince of Wales started his day at Quarry Bank, Styal Primary school and Norcliffe Unitarian Chapel.
The Duchess of Cornwall at the same time went to HMP Styal to meet women receiving work-based training and education and heard about the work of the Literacy Trust.
The pair then went to the Old Saw Mill in Congleton where they saw a community hub run by volunteers. They spoke to local groups and residents who use the facilities for activities such as crafts and dance groups.
Hundreds of people turned out to catch a glimpse of the royals in the town.
Finally they saw the Treo the dog memorial statue before celebrating 700 years of Mayoralty at Congleton Town Hall.
Local resident, Steve Pullen, who got to speak to Prince Charles when he called into the aptly named Prince of Wales pub, said:
“It was something of a surprise as he came through the door, but it was fantastic. He was asking about local brews, and if we came here often!“.
