Prince Charles has been named as the new patron of Guernsey's Les Bourgs hospice, his first Guernsey patronage.
His Royal Highness agreed to the move following a visit to the Bailiwick, and the hospice, in 2012.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall officially opened the hospice during their visit.
The news was welcomed by the island's Lieutenant Governor, Air Marshal Peter Walker, who described it as a powerful endorsement of Guernsey hospice care.
