Wales - apart from Plaid - send good wishes.

GOODWILL messages were being sent to Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles last night from political and civic leaders in Wales.

Only Plaid Cymru refused to offer congratulations, preferring not to get involved in ``Royal affairs''.

First minister Rhodri Morgan said: ``I am very happy for the Prince of Wales and Mrs Parker Bowles and I would like to wish them well in their marriage.

``I look forward to welcoming them both to Wales in the future. ''

At Caernarfon, the Royal Town where in 1969 a youthful Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales at the famous castle, the news was welcomed by mayor Roy Owen.

He said: ``I'm quite happy for him. The guy deserves a bit of happiness after what he's gone through. I support what he's doing in full. ''

Nathan Rigby, 18, of Connah's Quay, was philosophical: ``Life goes on and I don't see why he should not be allowed to get on with his life. ''

Audrey Hughes, 81, of Mold, said: ``They deserve a bit of happiness and I have no problem with Camilla becoming Queen. I wish them all the best. I am very pleased they are getting married. ''

Conservative leader in the Assembly Nick Bourne said: ``I warmly welcome the news that Prince Charles is to marry Camilla Parker-Bowles.

``I offer them my congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness. ''

And Lembit Opik, Montgomeryshire Liberal Democrat MP and well known pro-Monarchist gave ``three cheers'' for the news.
