The Repair Shop:
A Royal Visit



- Lifestyle

Preserving heritage craft skills and ensuring the training of a new generation is a passion both the Prince and Jay share. Steve’s 21 year old son Fred has been his dad’s apprentice for three years and is brought on board to help Steve restore the Dumfries House clock. Under his dad’s expert tutelage, Fred creates a new suspension for the clock while Steve focuses on stripping down and rebuilding the mechanism in the hope he can restore the clock’s chime. Jay and the team are delighted to welcome His Royal Highness to The Repair Shop barn to be reunited with the items. This programme was filmed between Autumn 2021 and March 2022 before His Majesty became King Charles III.
