Prince Charles

The Prince of Wales has written a letter in support of local journalism and newspapers.

In the letter, Charles talks about the rapidly changing media landscape and how digital media has transformed the way we consume our news.

He writes: "Despite this rapid change, I am very encouraged by the evidence that suggests that local journalism is adapting well and remains in robust health with audience numbers remaining strong across print and digital platforms."

Charles referred to a survey which said local newspapers remain the most trusted source of community news, adding the importance of trusted media sources "cannot be underestimated".
