Prince Charles is not very fond of protective face masks, and will not wear one in his next royal engagement unless the government tells him it is a must.
The government’s new guidelines, which came into force on Monday (July 19th), allow people to cover their faces in socially isolated situations. The Prince of Wales, who is scheduled to attend a fundraising event at Exeter Cathedral the same day, plans to take advantage of the new rules. A source said Daily mail, “This will be the first time in 18 months that we are returning to normal. We will be looking forward, not backward.”
“This is the first time the prince has been to a place and he will not wear a mask because it is a large area where people will be socially isolated and this will be the first day of the new rules. Then the prince will wear one but not the other, “the insider explained.
Monday has been dubbed “Independence Day” by local media as most legal coronavirus restrictions in England have been lifted as part of the fourth phase of the government’s epidemic recovery roadmap. For the first time since March 2020, the two-meter rule is not being implemented. Covering the face is also not mandatory, although the government has said it “expects and recommends” people in crowded areas such as public transportation. .
Prince Charles is not the only British monarch who wants to take off his face mask, as his wife Camilla had previously expressed displeasure against him. During a visit to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff earlier this month, the Duchess of Cornwall told a student that she “can’t wait to get rid of it (the masked man).”
The Duchess, who recently celebrated her 74th birthday, will also attend a fundraising event with her husband on Monday, marking her first working engagement since the government allowed people to take off their face masks. ۔ During a visit to Exeter Cathedral, the couple will learn about the restoration of the ancient shrine, and will also meet with community groups, including the Devon Wildlife Trust, Exeter City Community Trust, and the Met Office, who work with the Cathedral and the University of Exeter. works.
