About the Prince of Wales Tartan

The Prince of Wales tartan is the same as the Duke of Rothesay Hunting and was actually created by mistake. Issued by the Vyella Co it was originally meant for the Rothesay except they missed the division showing the single white line, so instead of withdrawing the cloth the pattern was given the new name the Prince of Wales.

The title of Prince of Wales goes back to the 1300s and has been given to several people in that time. Currently the only person who holds this specific title is Charles and he has been Prince of Wales since 1958.
