Queen In Caernarfon after 35 Years
The Queen returns to Caernarfon in Gwynedd today for the first time in 35 years, as part of a two-day tour of Wales with the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Queen is set to visit Caernarfon castle, the scene of the investiture of her eldest son, Prince Charles as the Prince of Wales, on July 1,1968. Read the story on BBC Wales News.
During her 40 minute visit to Caernarfon castle, she will see an exhibition about the investiture.
Wales History has a timeline that traces the main events and highlights of the investiture that you can explore.
Our archive clips capture some great moments from previous royal tours, including a news item from 1949, when a young Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh visit the University of Wales at Bangor.
Other highlights include the Queen meeting a naughty Welsh pony called Owian Glydwr at the Brecon and Brecknock Agricultural Show in 1955.
