On Saturday 24 March, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall concluded their visit to Sweden.
The Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and The King and Queen began the day with a visit to Stockholm's Vasa Museum. The Vasa Museum is one of Sweden's biggest tourist attractions, and houses the Royal Ship Vasa, which was raised in 1961 after having capsized on its maiden voyage on 10 August 1628. During the visit, the royal visitors were shown the museum's collections of objects found on board the Vasa, and they also went aboard the ship. After seeing the Vasa Museum, the royal party travelled to Saltå Mill near Järna. There, they had the opportunity to look at the old pebble mills and to see flour being made. Before visiting the mill shop, they visited the bakery and met master baker Manfred Enoksson, who explained about the sourdough process. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall then left for Skavsta Airport, for their onward journey to Denmark.
