The British Embassy in Bucharest announces that Charles, the Prince of Wales will arrive in Bucharest this afternoon for a private visit where he will meet Romanian President Klaus Iohannis and Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos.

Also, the Embassy informs that the price will spend most of his time privately in Transylvania but in order to mark the first anniversary of his Foundation – Fundatia Printul de Wales, he will travel to Viscri to publicly open ‘The Prince of Wales’s Training Centre’.

‘The Prince of Wales’s Foundation Romania’ (Fundatia Printul de Wales) was launched by the Prince of Wales on 2 June 2015 and it is based in Viscri, representing an educational charity supporting architectural heritage preservation, farming and sustainable development in Romania. The main goal of the charity is to bring skills and knowledge to rural communities to support local people and help them to become employable. The new training centre is based in Viscri, Brasov County. The training centre is founded based on the old barn, while the old house has been extended to accommodate apprentices from across the country. Thus, this year, the Foundation will offer 12 courses which will benefit around 150 people from rural areas predominantly from Transylvania and Moldavia.

The executive director of The Prince of Wales’s Foundation, Romanian born Aura Woodward, declares that the new centre is “a dream comes true for His Royal Highness who has visited Romania for nearly twenty years and wishes to leave a legacy to our country”.

The training centre is currently hosting the first traditional fabrics’ course for apprentices from Bucovina, Maramures, Bucharest and Transylvania.
