The Prince of Wales has celebrated the 50th anniversary of his investiture by visiting a Prince's Trust call centre near Cardiff.

Yesterday Charles met workers at the charity's helpline and young people who have benefited from its advice.

The heir to the throne was created the Prince of Wales by the Queen as a young child on July 26, 1958.

He was formally invested with the title 11 years later on July 1, 1969 at the age of 20.

Meanwhile, his daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge yesterday launched the latest version of her family-friendly garden, which first appeared at the Chelsea Garden Show, ready for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival.

She joined children from her charities enjoying a picnic in the green space. Pine cones had been hidden in the garden for children to find and the duchess revealed her daughter helped collect them.
