Shane Lipscombe Meets HRH Prince Charles

Prince-CharlesSaxoncourt Group and Shane English Schools founder, Shane Lipscombe had the pleasure to have the Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Charles, visit the Nanteos Mansion Country House Hotel owned by the Saxoncourt Group.

A National Trust Reward Ceremony was held at the Hotel featuring Prime Cymru who organise adult training in Wales and are part of the Prince’s Trust, and the Cambrian Mountain Initiative (CMI) who promote agriculture in the area. Prince Charles is patron of the CMI and Nanteos is an ambassador for the group.

His Royal Highness met Shane Lipscombe, his wife Carol and his daughter Angelina. He was presented with Nanteos teddy bears for Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The future king was even given some of our very own honey to enjoy.

Shane enjoyed his time taking Prince Charles and guests on a professional tour around the Mansion. The Prince was pleasant and lively, and had many questions about the surroundings in the Mansion. By all accounts Shane performed his role as host admirably.
