Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, will be in Greenville on Memorial Day weekend for the Greenville Scottish Games. During the visit, the prince will present Miss South Carolina and Miss South Carolina teen participants with the Duke Of Edinburgh Award. The visit by Prince Edward marks the first time a senior member of the British Royal Family has ever been to the Upstate.
Bev Griffin is the Vice President and CFO for the Greenville Scottish Games. “This will have a huge economic impact on Greenville and the Upstate,” she says. “Scottish clans from across the U.S. will come to the games and have the opportunity to visit with royalty.”
Knox White is Mayor of Greenville. “This is not just a quick in and out,” he says. “He’ll be here for a number of days and have a chance to see our beautiful city. And there’ll be opportunities for the public to have a chance to glimpse the prince.”
