The Prince of Wales has returned to Romania to visit a charity which promotes skills and training in rural Transylvania.

Charles, a long-standing supporter of Romanian rural traditions, met president Klaus Iohannis and prime minister Dacian Ciolos after arriving in Bucharest.

He discussed topics including Romania's cultural heritage, durable rural development and traditional architecture.

Charles will then travel to Transylvania, where he owns two properties which he visits regularly.

On Wednesday, he will celebrate the first year of the Prince of Wales Foundation Romania, which supports the Eastern European nation's heritage and rural life as well as assisting sustainable development.

Charles first visited Romania in 1998.
