HRH The Prince of Wales has visited the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to launch a new scholarship appeal on St. David's Day.

Prince Charles visited the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama today with The Duchess of Cornwall to mark the launch of a new scholarship appeal for the college. The Prince, who is also the patron of the college, met with the first five recipients of the new scholarship, which will be awarded annually.

The five recipients are Camilla Clarke (Theatre Design), Toks Dada (Arts Administration), Elliw Dafydd (Acting), David Doidge (piano repetiteur) and Trystan Griffiths (Opera).

Originally established by the Arts Council of Wales, the scholarships are designed to reward pupils with exceptional potential in their chosen area with the opportunity to study at the RCWMD.

College Principal Helen Boulding commented: "His Royal Highness is an active and supportive Patron of the College… We are delighted that he and The Duchess of Cornwall are able to be with us today as we launch this ambitious appeal."
