Royal Tour in Cornwall. ANCIENT CEREMONIES. The Prince and Princess of Wales, travelling as the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, left London on Tuesday morning to make a tour of the Duchy properties in Cornwall and Devon. Their Royal Highnesses proceeded by train to Bridestowe, whence they motored to Launces- ton where they received an enthusiastic greet- ing from thousands of Cornish folk. The Royal party was met on Polston Bridge on the Devon and Cornish border by the Earl. of Mount Edgecumbe, and the Duke was presented with a grey riding cloak, in accordance with ancient custom connected with one of the Duchy Manors. At Launceston the Mayor presented an ad- dress of welcome, in replying to which the Duke expressed thanks for tne loyal and hearty welcome to the ancient capital of Cornwall. The Durhess was presented with an album and bouquet, and a thousand children sang God Bless the Prince of Wales." The Royal party visited the Castle grounds and took tea at the Guildhall. The Duke handed the Mayor a document appointing the Mayor for the time being Constable of the Castle. On leaving Launceston their Royal High- nesses had an enjoyable motor ride over the Cornish moors to Bodmin, where a stop was made in order that they might receive from the Mayor and Corporation an address, which was enclosed in a reduced facsimile of a 12th century casket. The Prince, in reply, referred to Bodmin's position as the county town and to its historic past. The Royal party then proceeded to Newquay. Amidst general rejoicing the Prince and Princess arrived at Newquay from Bodmin at 6.45 by motor-car. In the presence of a large and enthusiastic concourse the Prince and Princess were presented with a loyal address of welcome. After the Princess had been presented with a bouquet the Royal visitors re-entered the cars and proceeded slowly through two miles of gaily-decorated streets to the Headland Hotel, where they are staying until Thursday morn- ing. The town celebrated the occasion last night by a display of fireworks and a huge bonfire.
