The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay, Prince Charles and Camilla, are visiting three leading Borders textile organisations today.

In his role as Patron of the Campaign for Wool, the Duke will firstly travel to Robert Noble Mill of Peebles to tour the site and meet staff.

He and the Duchess will then move south to Galashiels to meet students from Heriot Watt University’s School of Textile and Design, as well as watch them weave and knit.

And finally the couple will head to Hawick to see Johnston’s of Elgin staff and learn more about the company.
