Prince of Wales at the RSC - Cameraman Stratford Upon Avon

Updated: Mar 24, 2020

Tom Sykes Cameraman and HRH Prince Charles

Yesterday I filmed HRH The Price of Wales as he visited the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford Upon Avon.

I was providing a Royal rota pool field for all UK broadcasters and the tour footage was used across the UK from the Royal Family Channel YouTube account to ITV & BBC News are online news sites including the Daily Mail. This means I was the only Cameraman covering the event and following the Prince very closely throughout his tour.

As part of the tour he donned a hard hat and high-viz jacket to meet some of the skilled costume and prop-makers from the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Prince of Wales was shown examples of the 40,000 items which make up the RSC's costume store and toured the site of the ongoing multi-million pound redevelopment of the company's existing Costume Workshop buildings and praised the 'super actors' from the prestigious company on his visit.

During his visit he also viewed a short performance of The Boy in the Dress at the RSC's The Other Place venue, a play adapted from the book by David Walliams with songs by Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers.

You can see some of the footage below.
