For the king and queen, their first trip to Wales since the coronation was pure joy.
Charles and Camilla watched a sheep shearing demonstration and met a new alpaca friend at the preview of the Brecknock Agricultural Show in Brecon.
Love-struck Camilla in blue gently stroked the alpaca’s neck while King Charles happily posed for photos with the animal in a tan suit.
The royal couple were also greeted by jubilant schoolchildren waving Union flags at Brecon Cathedral.
Inside, the royal couple signed a guest book to mark the cathedral’s 100th anniversary.
Their smart visit was marked by a royal salute from reservists from the 104 Regiment Royal Artillery.
The official welcome was the first of its kind in Brecon.
There was another reason for the monarch to smile, as rising profits from offshore wind farms are set to earn him an £80million grant from the taxpayer.
He will rake in the money even though his subsidy rate was halved yesterday.
Funding for the monarchy is to be cut from 25 percent to 12 percent of the Crown Estate’s net profit, the Treasury announced yesterday.
But the change in how the taxpayer-funded grant is calculated comes as new offshore wind power deals are expected to boost profits to over £1billion.
His payment for next year and 2024-2020 is set at £86.3million.
