CORNWALL will welcome Prince Charles and Camilla to the county today.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall will visit Lostwithiel, Bude and St Austell, before moving on to Devon.

In Lostwithiel they will host a reception at the Duchy Nursery to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Cornwall Crafts Association.

They will visit Bude Castle the same day, viewing workshops run by local craftspeople and meeting members of the community and local groups.

They return to Lostwithiel on Wednesday, the Duchess's birthday, to visit the newly restored Duchy Palace, after a £1 million regeneration by the Prince of Wales's Charity, the Prince's Regeneration Trust and the Cornwall Buildings Preservation Trust.

The Duchess will be presented with a cake as the town band plays Happy Birthday.

In Bude they will unveil a plaque commemorating the restoration and refurbishment of Stratton Community Hospital, and the Duchess will spend some time at the Children's Hospice South West's Little Harbour Hospice at Porthpean, near St Austell.

She will tour the facility and meet the children, their families and supporters.

    When you think about it all institutions are 'self styled'.

    Lets see if the self-styled Cornish Stannary Parliament turn up in Lostwithiel to show their opposition to the Duke and Duchess of CORNWALL, a county of England.
