The Prince and Princess of Wales will visit a Welsh rugby club and socialise with mountain rescue climbers next week.

William and Kate will attend Dowlais Rugby Club along with members of the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team in Wales on Thursday.

The club, which is a feeder club to Cardiff Blues, is a popular spot for the climbers to socialise and relax when they are off duty.

At the club, the royals will meet mountain rescue volunteers, the organisation’s supporters and members of the local community.

Prior to becoming a senior royal at the age of 35, William had a career as an RAF search and rescue pilot.

He also worked as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
