THE sun came out for the final day of the visit to the county by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, who were greeted by large crowds as they arrived in Lostwithiel on Wednesday.

There were shouts of 'congratulations sir,' because the Duke as well as the Queen, is also celebrating a Diamond Jubilee – he has been the Duke of Cornwall for 60 years.

Prince Charles and Camilla presented Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Award certificates to 40 young people who have completed their training.

They met representatives of many organisations, including Scouts, Guides, St John Ambulance, Boys' Brigade, and Army, Police and Fire, Air and Sea Cadets.

The Royal couple watched a flood emergency exercise and spent time chatting to residents of the town affected by last year's severe flooding.

While the Duchess looked around the town, the Duke went to the old Duchy Palace. The Prince's Regeneration Trust bought the building in 2009 and is working with the Cornwall Building Preservation Trust to restore it.
