River Severn 2012

Prince Charles has been to visit the bridge that controversially carries his name for an official ceremony.

The Second Severn crossing between Wales and Bristol is now called The Prince of Wales Bridge.

That's despite thousands of people signing an online petition against it.

With many angry as there wasn't a public consultation about its new name.

But Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns says it's the right thing to do:

' It marks the respect of someone who bridges two nations, who binds two communities closer together...and I think it's important that we do that.'

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the bridge to start their yearly 'Wales Week' tour.
