The royal was greeted by the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wrexham and Roman Catholic parish Priest Holywell, Father Justin Karakadu.

"The water inside the crypt is believed to contain healing properties. The story goes that Winefride was the daughter of a local prince who, around the year 630, was chased and killed and in the place where her head fell, a spring of water came up. She was raised back to life by St. Beuno and became a nun. A white scar encircled her neck, witness to her martyrdom," a message on Charles' Instagram read. "During the visit, The Prince touched the pool of water, met those involved with the site, and said hello to local schoolchildren."

"Today in Llantrisant, South Wales, Their Royal Highnesses were welcomed to the newly renovated Llantrisant Guildhall Heritage and Visitors’ Centre," the post said. "Originally built in 1346 and rebuilt in 1773, the Guildhall was the centre of governance of Llantrisant and has been restored through extensive fundraising after falling derelict. The Guildhall celebrates the history of the town and provides a hub for the local community - it’s used as an activity centre for school groups, concerts, ghost walks, and more! Thank you to the whole community for such a warm welcome."
