Travelling Ahead young people meet the Royals!


Travelling Ahead attended the Royal Opening of the 5th Welsh Assembly at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay on June 7th. We joined 20 other youth and school groups from across Wales and were able to greet the Royal Family and other VIPs including all the new Assembly Members (and  Only Boys Aloud!) in a special place on the steps of the Welsh Assembly building.  Young people from Pembrokeshire’s  Unity Project Chelsea Jones and Ricky Price together with Nicole Miller, Carly Thomas and Ellie Edwards from the Equal Voice Forum based at Torfaen’s West Monmouthshire School were the young people representatives and were able to say hello to the Queen as she left the ceremony.  Chelsea Jones presented her with a hand-made posy and the whole group were smiling when Prince Charles then stopped for a chat with them on the steps of the Senedd the Welsh Assembly building.

The event in full can be viewed on Senedd TV and you can see the Queen greeting the young people at 1.05:27 and Prince Charles talking to the group at 1:07 into the programme
