A speech by HRH The Prince of Wales at The Prince's School of Traditional Arts Degree Show

I am so impressed, as always, but particularly this year by real quality and beauty of the work that is on show today and I also want to say how very very proud I am of all the students at my School of Traditional Arts.

I established my School originally not just to teach young people the traditional arts and crafts which are in such desperate need of regeneration and support all over the world, but also to give inspiration for young people of many different faiths and backgrounds and from many parts of the globe to understand the principles which connect us all at the most fundamental level.

Those of you who are displaying your work today can congratulate yourselves on what you have achieved here. But I do so hope that when you return to your home countries you will be able in turn to inspire and encourage others to seek an understanding of these principles.
