Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were guests of honour at a charity concert at St Mary’s Church in Old Hunstanton.

They were there to support Music in Country Churches, of which the prince is a patron.

Last night’s visit came ahead of their appearance at the Sandringham Flower Show today.

Upon arrival at Old Hunstanton they were greeted by members of the public before Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk Richard Jewson introduced them to the mayor and mayoress of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Barry and Christine Ayres.

They shook hands and took time to speak to people including representatives of Music in Country Churches, churchwardens, curate the Rev James Monro and the Bishop of Norwich the Rt Rev Graham James.

The prince, dressed in a blue suit and the duchess, in a smart turquoise dress, were in cheerful mood as they were set to enter the church to listen to the music of the English Chamber Orchestra.

Also in attendance were Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, who are also expected to be in attendance at the Sandringham Flower Show.

The Music in Country Churches concert raised money for the St Mary’s church in Titchwell.
