HRH the Prince of Wales made a surprise visit to a waterlogged Dafen Park after an official visit to Llanelly House earlier in the day. It was the Royal's first visit to Dafen since unveiling a revamped Nevill's Arms in 2011, when it was renamed 'Porky's Bar and Grill'.
The soccer calendar at Dafen Park has been badly affected by the recent weather, with many games postponed because of water logged pitches. Burrowing animals – another problem in the park – are thought to have retreated to higher ground – although Fox News reports that this was in protest to the Council's pitch fee increases. The Prince said that the condition of the pitches coupled with future price hikes was a tragedy.
Rumours that the Prince may have been considering buying a house in neighbouring Felinfoel were quashed when it was admitted that he thought the village had been moved brick by brick to St Fagans Museum of Welsh Life.
The Prince ended the visit at Dafen Chippy, congratulating the take away on its improved Food Hygiene rating of 3 out of 5, before continuing to other parts of the country ahead of St David's Day celebrations.
