On Wednesday 7th September 2022 the Duke of Rothesay visited the UNESCO World Heritage Site at New Lanark .

As the Lanark and District Pipe Band played,  the Duke was welcomed to the village by Lord Lieutenant of Lanarkshire , Lady Haughey CBE , and introduced to the Provost of South Lanarkshire Council , Councillor Margaret Cooper before being taken on a tour of the Visitor Centre by the Chair of the New Lanark Trust James Pow . This included viewing the mill’s preserved spinning frame before meeting with volunteers, workers and donors and signing the Visitor’s Book on the rooftop garden where he was also  treated to one of New Lanark’s signatory ice creams .

At the end of the visit His Royal Highness was presented with a special shawl from the mill’s newest wool range as a gift for the Duchess of Rothesay .
