His Royal Highness put an apron on to make bara brith, a Welsh tea bread, before being presented with a loaf to take home. He also watched as students proudly participated in traditional folk dancing.

The Prince also joined a lesson where students learned about the history and impact of the Gresford Colliery Disaster.

Speaking to four pupils, he said: “That was a very good run-through of what happened and a very good history lesson for me, as well.”

Students and staff had dressed for the occasion wearing Welsh lady costumes, daffodils, and the traditional red, white and green colours of the Welsh flag. 

Four-year-old Esme Dale wore a collar-sized daffodil around her neck to which Prince William said "I like your daffodil, that's amazing."

As he left, after posing for a group photo with the school, students gave him three Welsh dragon toys to pass on to his children George, Charlotte and Louis.
