“The Full Council resolves to:

  • Welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Prince and Princess of Wales as the new Duke and Duchess of Cornwall.
  • Recognise the important constitutional role held by the Duke of Cornwall, together with the significant responsibility for the sustainable stewardship of the Duchy of Cornwall and the protection, promotion and celebration of Cornish identity, culture and heritage.
  • Asks the Chairman of the Council to write on behalf of the Council to the new Duke of Cornwall offering condolences on the loss of his grandmother and asking him to address the Council at his earliest opportunity to look at ways in which to continue to build the working relationship and outcomes previously set in place by his father, now King Charles III.”
