In honour of St David's Day, I had an exhaustive search through all my postcards to find a suitable image of Wales. This is the only one I found, so it will have to do...
I threw this into my 3 for a dollar pile at my first postcard show not because it is a particularly great card (although unused, it does have that ink stain on the corner) but because it made me smile at the youthful, non-regal look of Prince Charles.
It is a domineering piece of architecture constructed as a military stronghold and also as a seat of government and royal palace. Edward made sure his son, who was to become the first English Prince of Wales, was born in the castle.
As you can see on this card, the current Prince of Wales had his investiture in 1969 at the same castle as did Prince Edward in 1911.
Maybe by the next St David's, someone from Wales will have sent me a card showcasing some its beauty. Or maybe someone over at Postcard Friendship Friday is showcasing one?
