The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall inside the cathedral in Mdina
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall ended the Royal visit to Malta today with a walkabout around historic Mdina.
Their Royal Highnesses met crowds in Mdina Square and visited the beautiful 17th-century St Paul’s Cathedral. While in the Cathedral, The Prince and The Duchess were given the grand tour by Archbishop of Malta Charles Scicluna.
The Archbishop said afterwards: "The Prince was very interested in the heritage of the building. It's such an important place of worship because it is a living monument to the visit of St Paul who spent three months in Malta.
"Prince Charles really appreciated that we have preserved the building so well and that it is still used, not just for liturgy, but concerts and other events."

Their Royal Highnesses also visited an artisan store where The Prince of Wales once shopped in 1968. Along the route they shook hands with well-wishers, who had come as far and wide as Beijing and Belarus.
To finish the tour, Their Royal Highnesses visited one of Malta's most popular tourist attractions, the Veduta Tal-Mdina lookout, which boasts panoramic views of the island.
