The carefree photo comes amid a turbulent few weeks for the royal family, which has seen Charles’ 99-year-old father Prince Philip leave a month long stay in hospital following a heart operation, while his son Prince Harry, 36, spoke to Oprah Winfrey in a bombshell interview which was critical of The Firm.
Earlier this week the Prince of Wales said he was ‘thrilled’ that his father the Duke of Edinburgh had left hospital following a month under the care of medical staff after being admitted with an infection and later undergoing heart surgery, but is yet to speak publicly on his son and daughter-in-law’s revelations.
Prince Philip, the nation’s longest-serving consort, spent 28 nights as a patient in London at King Edward VII’s Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital – his longest ever stay. Philip was initially admitted on a precautionary basis for an infection, before having a heart operation midway through his four-week period in hospital.
Charles, who was visiting a pop-up coronavirus vaccination centre at Finsbury Park Mosque in North London this week, said he was delighted that his father was out of hospital, revealing: ‘I am thrilled about it.’ When asked if he had spoken to Philip yet, Charles replied: ‘Oh yes, I have spoken to him several times.’
Next week, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are to travel to Greece next week for an official two-day visit at the request of the Government.
During the visit, from March 24-25, Charles and Camilla will attend the Bicentenary Independence Day celebrations in Athens, following an invitation from Greece’s prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
The couple will attend a reception at the newly reopened National Gallery of Greece on March 24 hosted by the country’s president Katerina Sakellaropoulou.
On their final day the prince and his wife will attend a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma Square and a traditional military parade.
