A former Ammanford youth worker who has made a new life in down under enjoyed a brush with royalty when he met Prince William and Princess Kate on their recent trip to Australia.

Rhys Morris was chosen by Barnardo’s Australia to present the royal couple with a photograph of Princess Diana opening the Barnardos centre in Sydney in 1988.

Rhys – and colleague Mele Laku – met the Royals at an afternoon reception at the iconic Sydney Opera House.

Rhys, aged 30, said: “It was a fantastic experience and Kate was really nice.

“She spent time speaking to a few people around our table and she seemed really interested which was nice.”

A Barnardo’s spokesman said: “Rhys was nominated because he has done more work in a year than some people have done in a lifetime.”

Rhys previously worked for the Carmarthenshire Youth Service.
