According to mediafax and szekelyhon.ro websites, Prince Charles has already arrived to Transylvania for a private visit.
The private jet of the British heir Crown prince landed on Marosvásarhely airport on Tuesday afternoon. Prince Charles travelled to the village in the province Brassó called Viscri where he checked and visited his private country house. Then he went to Miklósvár to spend the night at the grof Tibor Kálnoky’s residence.
Székelyhon.ro and the mediafax news agency also noted that the duke was going to travel to Zalanpatak (Valea Zalanului). Interestingly, in this village he has a real estate with several buildings where he keeps animals such as mangalica and naked-neck chickens.
The Price of Wales is a returning guest in Romania; last June he was in Transylvania then after spending a couple of days in Zalánpatak he went to Bucharest where he had a meeting with Prime Minister Victor Ponta and President Traian Basescu.
Moreover, the duke 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.
Interestingly, 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.
