Prince Charles took an unannounced stroll up Narborough Road on 25th January to meet local traders after visiting the community hub at Westcotes Library.
As part of His Royal Highness's scheduled visit to Leicester he met local business owners in the library who presented him with a hamper containing some of the produce available on Narborough Road. He also met members of the British Asian Trust, local faith groups, library staff and representatives of two community groups, Toddler Time and the English Conversation Group which meet at the library.
He then headed off for a quick meet and greet tour of Narborough Road, accompanied by MP Liz Kendall and Sir Peter Soulsby; gathering a media scrum and a crowd of onlookers on the way.
Prince Charles was in Leicestershire on a four hour visit to the City of Leicester College, St. Phillip's Church and Montsorrel Railway.
In 2016, Narborough Road was named the most multi-cultural street in the UK following research by the London School of Economics.
Subsequently dubbed 'a United Nations of shopkeepers', the street features more than 200 shops and represents at least 23 nationalities.Visit our FB page for more photos & video
