50 years since the Investiture

Collections / Exhibitions - Posted 01-07-2019

Exactly 50 years ago on July 1st 1969, Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales in Caernarfon Castle. The investiture was controversial and led to widespread protests. Conversely, it was also widely supported and championed by the Secretary of State for Wales, George Thomas.

Rhodri Evans, who has been researching the radical response to the investiture as part of a PhD at Aberystwyth University has curated a small exhibition on the subject in the Library’s Summers Room.

The exhibition will run until Friday July 5th, and will include material from the Library’s print, archival and screen and sound collections.
