On this day 12 years ago, July 7 2011, the Brecon & Radnor Express reported a story of King Charles and his wife, Queen Camilla, visiting Glenys Price, an 80-year-old woman living with cancer from Builth Wells.

Glenys met the then Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall at the Bracken Trust cancer care facility in Llandrindod Wells.

The Royal couple were on their annual Welsh summer tour at the time of visiting.

Glenys said: "I had a long chat with him (Charles) and her (Camilla), as well. It was wonderful!"

Asked if the Royal visit had lifted the spirits of patients at the cancer charity in Cefnllys Lane, Glenys who had fought the disease for almost three years at the time said: "Definitely. To think that he was quite ordinary talking to you and wanting to know what was going on and if the treatment was doing any good means a lot to ordinary people.

"He wasn't in a hurry and spoke to everyone and met the school children outside.

"I think it's very good for the public and for him to know what is going on. The Bracken Trust is a wonderful place."

The newly crowned Monarch spent time with Glenys, and asked her about her involvement with the Young Farmers' Club, of which was is the Brecknock Federation President.

The grandmother of 13, who also had eight great grandchildren, told Charles that she hoped to attend the Royal Welsh Show in Llanelwedd later that month where a number of her family, including two of her great grandchildren, were participating with the YFC.

She said: "Prince Charles said he thought the YFC was a wonderful movement for young people."

Around 100 children from Cenfllys County Primary School enthusiastically greeted Charles and Camilla when they arrived and after their meet and greet session at the Bracken Trust, the Royal couple unveiled a plaque to commemorate their visit and the new on site £400,000 Macmillan Cancer Support and Information Centre.

Bracken Trust Chairman Reg Cawthorne said: "The visit went fantastically well and it was a great boost to the patients and volunteers.

"Prince Charles is a patron of Macmillan and the Duchess is a patron of the Maggie's Centres which are a bigger version of the Bracken. They are aware of a, cancer and b, the type of support we offer."

On their Welsh tour, the Royal couple also visited David Bamford Carpets in Presteigne and also Aryma in Llandrindod Wells.
