Prince Charles has begun his annual summer tour of Wales with a visit to a Carmarthenshire village.

The Prince of Wales unveiled a new stained glass window in Myddfai, near Llandovery, on Sunday.

The window has been created on the theme of Welsh legends at Myddfai Community Hall.

Every summer, the prince spends a week at Llwynywermod, his farmhouse home in Carmarthenshire, and make a series of visits around Wales.

His tour this year aims to "celebrate enterprise", recognising Wales' "unique heritage" and promote sustainability.

A Clarence House spokesman said: "The Prince of Wales is very much looking forward to a busy few days of engagements, visiting eight Welsh counties, and meeting people working in a huge variety of different roles, including in the military, in enterprise and in the heritage sector."
