KATE and William have no plans for a grand investiture ceremony to be crowned Prince and Princess of Wales.

The Wales’s instead insist they are focused on deepening the “trust and respect” of the people of Wales – and return again before Christmas.

The Prince and Princess of Wales insist they are focussed on deepening the ‘trust and respect’ rather than on planning for a grand investiture ceremony

William‘s dad was crowned Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in a televised ceremony when he was 20-years-old.

It is feared the crowning in a castle is a bit old-fashioned as the new Prince and Prince and Princess of Wales plan to serve the principality and “represent and celebrate the dynamic, modern nation”, it is understood.

Sources close to the couple say Wales has a “special place” in their hearts as the newlyweds settled down in Anglesey ten years ago at their first home where Wills worked as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.

Wales was also Prince George‘s first home, aides point out.

William’s first engagement as eight-year-old was in Cardiff and he took George and Charlotte for their maiden first royal gig to Wales during the Platinum Jubilee.

The King announced they were Prince and Princess of Wales in his first address 24 hours after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

King Charles III became Prince of Wales when he was nine-years-old. The young prince found out about his new title when he was watching television in his headmaster’s office at Cheam School in 1958.

It was conveyed in a surprise announcement in a recorded message delivered by his mother at the opening ceremony of the Empire Games which was held in Cardiff, Wales.

But Charles was not formally appointed the role of Prince of Wales until an investiture at Caernarfon Castle in July 1969.

The televised event took place amid controversy and the threat of trouble by a growing Welsh nationalist movement.

Millions watched the spectacle on television – which also featured in an episode of The Crown.

Princess Diana became Princess of Wales when she married Charles in 1981.
