Royal Roundup: Prince Charles Visits Far North Scotland While On Holiday
While staying at the Castle of Mey on Caithness Coast, Prince Charles recently visited Reid’s Bakery in Thurso, where he attempted to make strawberry tarts. Prince Charles, whom is known as Duke of Rothesay when he visits Scotland (instead of Prince of Wales), has been visiting far northern Scotland recently while on holiday at the late Queen Mother’s home. He used a piping bag while decorating the pastries, and was assisted by worker Lauren MacKenzie, who said the Prince “did very well,” reports BBC.
