Gareth, who uses SLSW services, got to meet Prince Charles and Camilla when they visited Torquay today.
He got to meet them as a member of Roc Samba Band when they stopped off in Cockington.
Marc Walpot, Gareth’s SLSW Carer, is part of the Samba band and was let into the secret the famous royals were visiting today.
He was due to lead a walking group, but managed to pack their samba clothes too, and they walked to Cockington where Gareth met them.
Gareth kissed Camilla’s hand and was thrilled, but desperately wanted to meet the future king.
Marc and Gareth left the group and Marc asked those who organised the trip if Gareth could meet Prince Charles… and his wish was granted. He got to shake his hand!
It’s not the first time Gareth has had a celebrity encounter, as he’s also got to meet his favourite actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in Los Angeles and in London before.
