Prince Charles was in Scotland for an official visit, this Friday July 30. The son of Queen Elizabeth II drew the kilt for the occasion.
The royal family of England has some worries for several weeks. While the members of the Crown are in turmoil with the announcement of the publication of Prince Harry’s memoirs, an anti-monarchist group mocks the future king of England, Prince Charles, through new posters placed in the streets of London. This does not prevent the son of Queen Elizabeth II to pursue his royal commitments with his head held high. Moreover, this Friday, July 30, the Daily Mail reveals that Prince Charles went to a fish market in Scotland. On this occasion, the father of Princes Harry and William drew the kilt.
The Prince of Wales, who holds the title of Duke of Rothesa, has made royal engagements in Shetland. The fishing industry is very important in this part of the country, so the husband of the Duchess of Cornwall first attended the opening of a new fish market at Lerwick Harbour, Scalloway. The Duke then met with staff and students at the NAFC Marine College, an educational and scientific institute offering training, education, research and development in areas related to the maritime industries. Afterwards, the Duke of Rothesay also met with members of the local community at Lerwick Town Hall. During this visit, Prince Charles was in very good spirits and did not miss a glass of whisky, before leaving for a new engagement.
If Prince Charles has a busy schedule in Scotland, he will then take a short break the coming weeks to spend time with his mother. Queen Elizabeth is currently in Balmoral for a few days of well-deserved rest. This is the first vacation that the sovereign will spend in her Scottish estate without her husband, Prince Philip, who died last April.
