Sark and Alderney have welcomed the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.

The royal couple visited the islands as part of a two-day tour of the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

They visited Saumarez Park and Castle Cornet in Guernsey on Thursday before flying by helicopter to Herm.

The Prince and Duchess unveiled a commemorative plaque at Sark's Island Hall and planted a royal oak tree in Alderney.

While in Sark, the royals took a carriage ride to the Seigneurie Gardens and met about 200 of the island's residents.

After arriving by helicopter in Alderney, they met the island's president and travelled to the Island Hall by vintage car.

The couple's visit was part of the Royal Family's Diamond Jubilee tour, celebrating the Queen's 60 years on the throne.
