On Friday 23 March, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall continued their visit to Sweden.
The King and the Prince of Wales began Friday by visiting Stockholm Resilience Center, which is part of Stockholm University. The centre carries out research in which mankind and nature are viewed as a whole.
One of the researchers linked to the centre, Fiona Lambe from Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), introduced The King and the Prince of Wales to one of the projects that the centre is working with. Fiona's research is based on reducing the use of wood as a heat source in developing countries, and using ethanol instead. A pot of tea was boiled for The King and the Prince of Wales to drink. A discussion was then held with several of the researchers working at the centre.
At the same time, The Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the British International Primary School, which was founded in 1980. They were given a tour of the school, and the pupils showed them their schoolwork in the classroom. In the library, the Duchess of Cornwall read aloud to the children. The visit concluded with the pupils singing in the gymnasium.
