Pupils from Rothesay Academy’s XL programme met the Duke of Rothesay at the official opening of The Prince’s Trust Wolfson Centre in Carlton Court, Glasgow, last month.

The centre is set to become Scotland’s biggest youth employment and enterprise hub. With one in four young people unemployed in Glasgow, the centre was created to increase young people’s access to training and jobs.

Pictured meeting the Duke at the event on Wednesday, June 22, is Charmayne Murphy and Emma MacPhee from Rothesay Academy.

This was the first of two meet-and-greets with the Duke for pupils from the project in one week, with fellow classmates also invited to attend the Royal visit to Bute Fabrics on Friday, June 24.
