Prince praises a trust repaid

PRINCE Charles paid tribute to lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone as he attended a conference for people who help young entrepreneurs enter business in Edinburgh.

He described Ms Mone, who founded Ultimo lingerie, as a "great ambassador" for the Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trustand for Scotland. Ms Mone was helped by the trust 13 years ago and is now on its board.

Later he was cheered by around 250 well-wishers in Dunbar, East Lothian, as he arrived at the John Muir Birthplace Trust.
