Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have released the picture they have chosen for this year’s Christmas cards, an adorable candid snap of the couple outside their Scottish home, Birkhall. The picture was taken by a member of their staff and will be sent to friends and family to say Merry Christmas from the pair.

Christmas will be different this year for the world due to the pandemic, and the Royal Family’s festive plans have faced changes.

Usually, The Firm meets at Sandringham House in Norfolk, however, due to restrictions royals will be spending the day separately.

The usual tree decorating, Christmas Eve meal and gift-giving, as well as a visit to church on Christmas Day, have been cancelled.

Charles and Camilla have opted to spend the day at their Highgrove House residence in Gloucestershire, while the Queen and Philip are staying at Windsor Castle.

To commemorate their 15th wedding anniversary, Charles and Camilla released a photo of themselves outside their Birkhall residence with their dogs Bluebell and Beth.

This week Charles and Camilla have stepped out to visit Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, meeting with care workers administering and receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.

The royal couple both wore face masks and goggles as they visited the Vaccination Centre at the hospital. 

To mark their visit, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall unveiled a plaque after chatting with front line staff. 

Photos of the visit were posted of the official Clarence House Twitter account, showing the Prince and Duchess speaking to health workers whilst wearing protective gear.

The caption stated: “The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have paid a visit to Gloucestershire Hospital’s Covid-19 Vaccination Hub in support of the recent vaccination roll-out programme.

“This follows The Prince and The Duchess’s visit to the hospital in June, following the end of the first lockdown.

“The Gloucestershire Hospital Vaccination Hub started vaccinating frontline health and care workers last week and to date has vaccinated over 1,124 NHS staff.”

The visit will have been especially poignant for Charles as he was diagnosed with coronavirus in March. 

The Prince of Wales has since recovered from the virus and has been vocal with his support of front-line workers during the pandemic.

Charles revealed he only experienced mild symptoms, and said he was “lucky” and “got away lightly”.

During his visit to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital Charles remarked how he was “way down the list” for a vaccine.

Charles said: “I think I am way down the list and will have to wait.”

The vaccine began rolling out this month, and priority is currently being given to those aged over 80 and health and care workers.
