Prince Charles has rounded off his week-long summer tour of Wales with a cup of tea in the Prince of Wales pub in Kenfig, Bridgend.

The prince chatted with members of the Tuesday Club on his visit to the family-run pub which dates back to the 16th Century.

Earlier, he visited the Coed Darcy urban village development near Neath.

The scheme backed by the Prince's Foundation for Building Community aims to transform a former refinery site.

The prince visited Coed Darcy to see how partners BP, Neath Port Talbot council, the Welsh assembly and developers St Modwen are turning one of Europe's biggest brownfield sites into a thriving community.

Lifeguards and villagers

He then moved onto the pub which shares his title.

The Prince is patron of Pub Is The Hub, a body which uses pubs as centres for community activity.

During the visit, he met members of the local historical society, lifeguards and other community groups and village residents.

Camilla finished her part of the tour on Thursday, with two solo visits in Swansea.

The day before, the royal couple visited the Doctor Who set at BBC Wales' Roath Lock studios, among other engagements in south Wales.

On Tuesday they carried out a series of engagements in north Wales, while on Monday the couple visited the last home of poet Dylan Thomas - the Boathouse in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire.
