The Prince and Princess of Wales visited the former coal mining village of Aberfan on the second day of their Wales trip before the Coronation next week.
They went to the Aberfan Memorial Garden to pay their respects to the 144 individuals, including 116 children, who lost their lives in the 1966 Aberfan disaster. The tragedy occurred when a coal mining waste tip collapsed and engulfed a school and houses in the Welsh village. The garden was opened in 1974 by Queen Elizabeth II as a tribute to the victims.

The royal couple participated in training activities with rescue volunteers before abseiling down a quarry.
After the training exercises, the Prince and Princess headed to the Dowlais Rugby Club where members of the team typically go to relax and socialise. They delivered pizzas and sat down to chat with locals, before doing a walkabout to greet the crowds that had gathered outside.

The Prince even assisted in taking a reservation!

The Wales family joined other members of the British Royal Family for the Easter Sunday Mattins Service at St George's Chapel in Windsor.
This Easter marks the first of King Charles III's reign, and in another first, Prince Louis accompanied his parents and elder siblings for the traditional service. The Waleses were seen arriving at the chapel with other members of the British Royal Family.
The Princess of Wales looked elegant in her sapphire blue Catherine Walker 'Mayfair' Coat.
The custom design with a modified velvet shawl collar was first worn for the Commonwealth Day service in 2022 (shown below).
