Prince Charles carried out today his first public engagement since the funeral of his father Prince Philip. The Prince of Wales arrived at Combermere Barracks in Windsor with a Tesla.
There, as Colonel of the Welsh Guards, he met members of the regiment – including some who took part in the poignant funeral procession of his father.
Standing outside the barracks, he delivered a heartfelt speech to the guards.
He said: “I was so enormously proud of those of you who formed part of the complement during my father’s funeral recently.”
Speaking on behalf of his family, he also said: “My family and I were deeply moved by the way you all performed your duty.
“And people from other countries rang me up to say that they never seen something so marvellous, so beautifully done and with such dignity and style.”
Most poignantly, he added: “I know my father would have been also enormously touched.”
