Charles, the Prince of Wales was visited Transylvania and he tried the Hungarian “pálinka” and the chimney cake and he was dancing for the music of the Heveder Band – itthon.ma reported.
During his visit in his real estate in Zalánpatak (Valea Zalanului) the duke went out to meet and get acquainted with the locals. He was an invited guest in one of the houses in the village where he could taste and try the local drinks and meals.
According to Romanian TV news, Prince Charles also visited that Szekler flower garden which was given as a gift to the youngest member of the British royal family in October. Prince George, the youngest member of the British royal family received this flower garden from the family of Count Tibor Kálnoky as his gift of baptism. The Price of Wales is a returning guest in Romania, and often mentions how special the relationship is between the people and environment of Transylvania. He also thinks that this connection is unique and there is no other place in Europe where we could find this kind of close relationship.
The British Royal Family can boast with Transylvanian-Hungarian family roots: the great-great grandmother of II. Queen Elisabeth – namely Klaudia Rhédey – was born in Erdőszentgyörgy in 1812 and she grew up in the Rhédey castle.
