King Charles did what no other monarch had done before

The new King of Great Britain Charles III, during a visit to Wales on Friday, delivered a speech in Welsh for a minute.

According to the BBC, he became the first monarch to do so.

The Welsh Charles III spoke in response to condolences expressed to him by the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, in connection with the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

In his speech, the king noted that Wales had always held a special place in the heart of his mother, which had been a great honor for him for a long time to be the Prince of Wales and that Prince William – his son, who now has this title, – has deep feelings for the Welsh.

As Prince of Wales, Charles often delivered parts of his Welsh speeches, in particular, he did this at the official opening of the then National Welsh Assembly in 1999.

Welsh language Charles studied at Aberystwyth University back in 1969 and was taught by Welsh nationalist Thedy Millward.

When Millward died in 2020, then-Prince Charles honored his memory by admitting that he may not have been his most diligent student.
