The Prince of Wales will be the guest of honour at the East of England Show in Peterborough.

Prince Charles [pictured - right] has accepted an invitation from organisers of the country show to attend the opening day on Friday 6 July.

The show is being held at the East of England show ground from the 6 to 8 July, and is described as the country's premier country show and Peterborough's biggest family event.

The Prince will tour the show's rural and environmental stands and present a number of awards, including long service prizes, the Farm Business awards and Apprentice of the Year.

Show committee chairman Andrew Riddington said: "This is the biggest rural event in the local calendar and celebrates everything that is great and good about the countryside. 

We are absolutely delighted that its standing as a major event has been further enhanced with news of Prince Charles’ attendance."

The Prince of Wales last attended the show in 2001.
