Nice to know they share their inner child and embrace the wonders of life like learning to read.

Camilla! Not only have you raided my closet, I see you’ve borrowed from my bookshelves as well!

A message from Prince Charles to Sikhs in the UK and across the Commonwealth, on the festival of Vaisakhi.

I never cease to be amazed at the length Charles goes to recognise the different faiths in the UK. Learning the speach in the language of the Sikhs takes that respect and inclusiveness just that much further.

Nice message.
The Sikh community provided hundreds of meals in the midst of the Australian bushfires just weeks ago - and now are rallying to help feed the vulnerable during this Covid-19 catastrophe.
Who better than The Prince of Wales to shine a light on their generosity.

The Sikh community here in London have always been very charitable. There is a Sikh organisation (maybe the same people Charles was mentioning) in the city centre that give out free hot meals to the homeless in ordinary world circumstances. They always have very long queues and make the food on the spot inside a van whenever I see them. Vand Chhakna (giving to others) is a key Sikh teaching and it is considered a religious duty to be selfless.

Charles' Earth Day 2020 message was simple and true.

Politicians and developers don't quite value the message in their decisions made all over the planet. If only it were mandatory to consult David Attenborough more often...

Caring for the health of our fellow citizens is fundamental. Be it keeping the water and air quality clean or supporting the NHS and those in our hospitals.

Who would think that the almost draconian measures taken in a fight against a killer pandemic there would be a positive effect on the environment. Cleaner air has enabled the Himalayas to be seen from over 100 miles away, a sight that hasn't been seen in over 30 years. Or the canals of Venice clean and clear enough to see fish. Who knew there were fish there.

I spent Earthday watching in wonder as Fantails fluttered around the trees outside my lounge windows and birdsong from other native birds I couldn't remember drifting through my windows. I will miss it when we lift the lockdown as the noise ps the traffic drives most back to the countryside.

It really gives you a clear illustration of what Charles has spent his life campaigning for and was trashed by the media and called a tree-hugging nutter. His advocacy for clean air and clean water has caused him to be seen as somehow not quite stable or proper enough to be seen as the Heir to the throne.

Time and the light of day have proved the validity of his so-called new age thinking.

This is something that really enhances my opinion of Charles, the man. He is openly supportive and understanding and respectful of all faiths. Its not only religious tolerance but with Charles, its religious acceptance.

I really do wonder if anything pertaining to Charles' coronation will be adapted to reflect this. I think it would be a beautiful thing to do.

Camilla's been taking phone calls on Silver Line, which is a telephone helpline for older people struggling with loneliness.

I agree, and that would be wonderful !

Aww, that’s beautiful. Camilla (and Charles) is so empathetic; the virus has stolen so much from everyone, both physically and emotionally. Humans are a social animal - even the most introverted of us (like me, lol); we’re not meant to be so isolated.

Both Charles and Camilla have done a wonderful job of keeping touch with not just their patronages but just people in general during this.

I love that Camilla has been volunteering with the phone line. Seniors being closed in right now without company is hard. Having a line to reach out on in these times is so important. Great to see Camilla helping out with it.

Wonderful video of Charles for Ramadan. He has always shown a good knowledge of other faiths and great respect for them as well.

Given the hostile attitude towards the Muslim community that has been going on in some places here in England over the past few years; I'm glad that Charles took part in this event!

Charles is always inclusive of the main religions of those in both the UK and the Commonwealth. It's not just that he ticks off the boxes, he knows the leaders of each in the UK and has studied enough to know and respect both they and their flock.

They are citizens and as much his mother's subjects as he is. Respect really does go both ways and we all bleed red when cut.

I have to agree with Marg. Charles does a lot to promote and encourage religious diversity across the UK, and has done a lot of work in the multi-faith sphere. He has close working links with the heads of the various religious faiths in the UK, and meets with them on an ongoing basis.
