Call for Prince Charles investiture regalia to go on show

Conservative AM Suzy Davies is calling for the regalia used by Prince Charles in his investiture in 1969 to be brought back to Wales.

Known as the Honours of the Principality of Wales, the rod, ring and sword were originally designed for the 1911 investiture of the Prince of Wales while the coronet worn in 1969 was designed especially for the occasion.

Christopher Lee, a constitutional historian, explains to Oliver Hides on BBC Radio Wales why he agrees with Ms Davies, and argues they should be put on show at Caernarfon Castle.
