This Post Office is at heart of the town of Llandovery. It is close to Llwynywermod, the Welsh home of as King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.

Llandovery Post Office was keen to celebrate the historic Coronation and the strong links to the area.

Charles and Camilla’s rural home, in the beautiful Welsh countryside, is two miles away.

Llwynwermod, also known as Llwynywormwood, is a 192-acre estate bought by the Duchy of Cornwall in 2007. It has been a happy place for the Royal couple to stay since 2008.

It is a three-bedroom farmhouse, which was once the coach house for a nearby mansion, which fell into ruin. Two other cottages on the estate in Carmarthenshire are let as holiday accommodation when his Majesty is not in residence.

Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales by The Queen on 1st July 1969 in a ceremony at Caernarfon Castle. He is the longest reigning Prince of Wales. Before the investiture, the Prince spent a term at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, learning to speak Welsh.

Manager Amy Stone said: “There was real excitement in the area when it was announced that Charles and Camilla had chosen a home at Llwynwermod. The Royal couple even started off the first local Motorcycle rally in the town seven years ago.

“For King Charles’ historic day, at the Post Office we really wanted to mark the occasion with lots of decorations and the decorate a crown competition."
