The future king of England Prince Charles has been photographed holding one of Rory's guitars..

A Limited Edition Patrick Eggle guitar that was bought as a gift for Rory by a fan a few years ago has come up for auction at 1818 Auctioneers. Rory's family returned the guitar to assist in fundraising for the fans medical bills. At an early previewing for tomorrow's (11 April) auction, a special guest The Prince Of Wales got to grips with the guitar.

Rock On for Rory

I'm really pleased the guitar has gone to a good home in Ireland, where it belongs, and am pleased that it will be played by young people.
