Ms Davies said: “I had the privilege of being in Bayeux for the 75th anniversary of D-Day commemorations [in June].

“We had an enormous marquee for our veterans after the service.

“I was completely blown away by the amount of time the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall spent with each and every veteran in that room.

“To see these faces light up with pride – they don’t want thanks, but the acknowledgement that what they did contributed and made a difference is something that is always  important for people.

“And they just gave that to each and every person and made them feel, I think, like a prince, like a special person just for one moment. 

“They must have been in that marquee for two to three hours. 

“There were some photographs, but this wasn’t for the public, this was of the veterans, this was for that community. 

“This was just them doing something that they feel strongly about.
