Prince Charles has finally joined the digital world! The UK’s future king took over the reins on the Clarence House Instagram account to share his first-ever social media post, marking his digital debut.
In his first post, Prince of Wales has paid tribute to the Sikh community ahead of his 10th royal visit to India.
“As I depart for India, on my tenth official visit, I did just want to convey my warmest best wishes to all of you in the Sikh Community in the United Kingdom, and across the Commonwealth, on the 550th Birth Anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji”, wrote HRH while sharing a photo of him along with the Duchess of Cornwall.
“The principles on which Guru Nanak founded the Sikh religion, and which guide your lives to this day, are ones which can inspire us all–hard work, fairness, respect, and selfless service to others. In embodying these values, Sikhs have made the most profound contribution to the life of this country, and continue to do so, in every imaginable field, just as you do in so many other places around the world”, he further added.
As the royal concluded, “This week, as Sikhs everywhere honor the founder of your faith, my wife and I wanted you to know just how much your community is valued and admired by us all, and that our thoughts are with you at this very special time.”
Prince Charles signed off the post writing, “HRH The Prince of Wales.”
However, his account has been chronicling his and Duchess of Cornwall’s activity since late 2012.
Prince Charles arrived in New Delhi on Nov 13, for a two-day tour of India, just one day before his 71st birthday!
