The Prince of Wales visited a hospital and the Duchess of Cornwall met villagers in a pub on the third day of their annual summer tour of Wales.

The prince was greeted by a crowd at Llandovery Hospital, Carmarthenshire, where he officially unveiled a new X-ray machine.

The duchess visited Rhandirmwyn, meeting people at the Royal Oak as well as visiting community groups.

They are also hosting a musical evening at their Carmarthenshire home later.

It features performers from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
