Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will make their annual visit to the Westcountry next week.

On Monday the Royal couple will tour the surfing town of Bude, viewing workshops of local crafts people and meeting members of the community, the Bude Surf Life Saving Club, young sea kayakers and the RNLI.

They will also visit Stratton Community Hospital to commemorate its restoration and refurbishment by unveiling a plaque. The Duchess of Cornwall will then visit Children's Hospice South West's Little Harbour hospice.

On Tuesday, the couple will head to Devon to visit the harbour town of Brixham to meet members of the fishing community.

The Prince will also make a speech to delegates taking part in the Fishing Into The Future workshop.

The event, co-hosted by the Prince's International Sustainability Unit, will for the first time bring together fishermen, fisheries scientists, retailers, policy-makers and conservation groups to discuss best practice for sustainable fishing.

The Duchess of Cornwall will meet students, staff and supporters during a visit to the WESC Foundation in Exeter, which provides learning and care for blind and partially sighted children and young people.

On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cornwall's birthday, the couple will come back to Cornwall to visit the restored Duchy Palace in Lostwithiel.

They will visit the Lostwithiel Parade Square, where the town band will play Happy Birthday to the Duchess, who will also meet local schoolchildren and be presented with a cake.

    I bet there is a strong smell of fresh paint at the above mentioned locations. Charles and Camilla must get sick of the smell everywhere they go

    When is this couple going to join the real world and start paying their taxes on the Duchy Estate?
