Prince Charles hails Cardiff music students' talent

The Prince of Wales has praised students from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) following their performance at Buckingham Palace.

Monday evening's event was to mark five years since RWCMD opened new facilities in Cardiff.

Celebrities including Dame Shirley Bassey, Michael Sheen and Bryn Terfel watched performances by students.

"I hope you now see just why I am proud to be patron of this august institution," said the prince.

"I've done it for 16 years and I can't tell you what a joy it's been every time I've been lucky enough to discover just what talent lurks behind the walls of this great establishment in Cardiff."
