Hillary Clinton to visit Swansea for university honour

A good friend who is Welsh and who is excited about this visit just called to tell me this news after hearing Hillary interviewed, so I looked it up for myself. As it happens, in my own American "mutt" heritage, one of my earliest New World ancestors was also Welsh.

The former US secretary of state and 2016 American presidential candidate will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Swansea University's Bay Campus.

It recognises her commitment to promoting the rights of families and children around the world.

Mrs Clinton's great grandparents were from south Wales.

Vice chancellor Prof Richard Davies said the university was honoured to present the award to the former first lady, the wife of former US president Bill Clinton.
