The Prince of Wales will help celebrate the 125th anniversary of a vibrant local newspaper during a day-long visit to Wales.
He begins in Abergavenny meeting staff at the local newspaper and marking a milestone anniversary of a sister publication, the Brecon and Radnor Express.
Later he is due to visit historic Tredegar House, near Newport, and attend a reception for one of his charities.
PRIME Cymru, the Prince's Initiative for Mature Enterprise in Wales, and supporters will be attending a celebration of its Enterprise Mentoring programme.
The Prince's pre-Christmas visit to Wales concludes in the afternoon with a tour to Ewenny Priory, near Bridgend.
The priory is the most complete Norman church in South Wales, and remains at the centre of a thriving Christian community.
Before leaving the church, the Prince will listen to carols sung by children from the choir of St Brides Major Church in Wales Primary School.
