King Charles secret donations to tiny village near his Welsh hideway
King Charlesmade a secret donation to help his neighbouring villagers in southwest Wales, where he andQueen Consort Camillalike to spend their summers away from the stresses of everyday royal life.
The Telegraphreports that the King paid for a defibrillator to be installed at the village hall close to hiscountry estate deep in the hills of southwest Wales .
He also anonymously handed over gifts for the Christmas Fayre in the historic village of Myddfai, near the Brecon Beacons, which has a population of just 400.
These acts of kindness have been revealed prior to the new monarch’s trip to Wales on Friday, where he will be attending services in Cardiff.
During his summers the King takes an active role in life in Myddfai, attending local Church services, and speaking to his neighbours around the village.
All of this is done with very little, if any fanfare, with those of the village perhaps not knowing that a Prince, now King, was a resident of this small Welsh town.
Carol Dyer, chair of Myddfai Community Council, spoke to The Telegraph about the new King and his time in the village.
She said: “It's quite difficult to say how many times a year he comes here because it's a very private location and because it's a private location and a private residence for him, the people of Myddfai have really respected that.

"One member of the council would take him around to meet everyone, and another would take Camilla around. It's always been very impressive how he talks to people.”
One anonymous member of the town revealed to the paper that Charles had donated prizes to the Christmas Fayre, merchandise sold by the Duchy of Cornwall, and had previously handed over a life-saving defibrillator for the village hall worth more than £1,000.
Residents of the small town, where the legend of the Lady in the Lake is said to have originated from, say that they hope even in his role as King that Charles will still be able to spend time among them.

“I hope he can still come to Myddfai – he's always seemed like a person who wants to do his own thing, but I suppose things have really changed now with him being King, and we're not sure what will happen,” said one such villager.
The King and Queen Consort purchased theLlwynywermod estatenear Myddfai in 2006 as they wanted a home base for their many trips to Wales.
