8:20am Thursday 30th January 2014 in Local News
Hundreds of people turned out to greet the future King and the Duchess of Cornwall as they toured south Essex.
The whistlestop tour of the county started at the High House Production Park in Purfleet before going to the Bell pub in Purleigh, near Maldon, then onto Westcliff’s Palace Theatre to watch a performance.
Delighted well-wishers shook the future monarch’s hand and two schoolchildren presented the pair with flowers.
