Prince Charles, 72, has issued an emotional message of thanks to Royal Mail staff for their “tireless efforts” to “keep our country connected” during the COVID-19 pandemic. The moving video clip was shared on Twitter just days after the Prince of Wales visited his father Prince Philip, 99, in hospital at the weekend.
While the Duke of Edinburgh was admitted as a “precautionary measure” and is said to “remain in good spirits” photos of Charles leaving King Edward VII hospital on Saturday appeared to show him looking tearful.
Royal Mail shared the new video of Charles on Twitter with the message: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to HRH The Prince of Wales for taking the time to record such an incredibly heartfelt video; recognising the hard work and dedication of everyone here at Royal Mail.”
Body language expert and author Judi James analysed the new clip of Charles for Express.co.uk and shared her findings.
