Charles and Camilla shared a series of heartwarming snaps

Charles' investiture as the Prince of Wales took place at Caernarfon Castle in 1969 in North Wales. During that year in the second year of his degree, the Prince attended the University College of Wales in Aberystwyth, studying Welsh history and language for a term.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate chose a stunning image from their trip to Cardiff Castle in December 2020 during their UK-wide royal train tour.

The Duchess was dressed in a red Alexander McQueen coat and a tartan scarf for the visit, where she and William met university students and toasted marshmallows at an outdoor market.
