Howell's School Llandaff welcomes King Charles III and the Queen Consort

Howells School Llandaff welcomes King Charles

Llandaff was the focus of the world's media this morning as King Charles III and the Queen Consort attended a Service of Prayer and Reflection for the life of The Queen at Llandaff Cathedral. Howell's students lined the route from Howell's up to the cathedral, keen to catch a glimpse of their new King. 

On arrival at the cathedral, His Majesty was warmly greeted by Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford. The congregation, which included Prime Minister Liz Truss and Secretary of State for Wales Robert Buckland, sang Welsh hymns including the much-loved Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer. 

The Archbishop of Wales, the Right Reverend Andrew John, paid tribute to the Queen, saying how she "had the ability to relate to the man or woman on the Clapham Omnibus, or here, the Merthyr Tydfil Omnibus". The service finished with a rendition of the national anthem, God Save The King before His Majesty was escorted to sign the visitors' book. 

Standing outside the cathedral, Mrs Davis, Principal, said: "The whole school has turned out and they are gathered along the route to the cathedral. It's a historic moment in time and a day we will all remember for the rest of our lives.'
