(Photos) Prince of Wales visits Ewenny Priory Church

The Prince of Wales paid a visit to Ewenny Priory Church on Friday, the first royal to do so in 600 years.
During the visit, the Prince met the Jenkins family, who have been making the internationally-famous Ewenny Pottery for eight generations. Ewenny Pottery is the oldest family working pottery in Wales and some pieces made there are at Llwynywermod, the Welsh home of The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall. The Prince met Alun Jenkins, who is also churchwarden at Ewenny, his wife Jayne and their daughter Mrs Caitlin Davies. Mrs Davies displayed some of the Ewenny Pottery and presented the Prince with a traditional Ewenny Pottery Wassail Bowl
Before leaving the church, the Prince listened to carols sung by children from the choir of St Brides Major Church in Wales Primary School, led by their headteacher, Mrs Claire Matthews. The children presented him with a lovespoon for his new grandson, Prince George, and an "Og" , a doll of himself made locally from recycled materials.
