Duchess takes the reins on visit to horse breeding farm in Wales

By Brett Campbell

The Duchess of Cornwall donned shades as she soaked up more sun on day two of her tour of Wales with husband Prince Charles.

Camilla enjoyed a ride in a horse-drawn carriage on Dyfed Shire Horse Farm, which has been open to the public for 25 years.

The breeding farm in the village of Eglwyswrw in Pembrokeshire sold one of its horses to the Household Calvary in 2008. Dyfed Grey Celt went on active duty in 2010 and has become a prominent member of the Queen's Cavalry.

The royal couple were also seen stroking the Dyfed bloodline of Shire horses in nearby fields as they engaged with visitors on the annual trip.

Camilla wore a knee-length powder blue tunic on the visit, which also coincides with a fortnight of festivals celebrating the rich community spirit in the village of Llangwm. Charles sported a summery linen suit as he mingled with the locals.
